There have been many theories online, with social media pushing the idea that Black People cannot acquire and be victims of the epidemic disease coronavirus, COVID-19. This was proved otherwise by the recent case.
Rudy Gobert, a professional basketball player for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association, has confirmed having tested coronavirus and came out positive. Meanwhile, the athlete admitted he was careless.
A Cameroonian China-based student Kem Senoua was the first African known to have been infected by the Coronavirus. He was later treated with antibiotics and drugs typically used to treat HIV.
It also a fact that the most reported cases of the virus are still less in the ‘black population’; as for what reasons, it could be a myth at this point.
Africa as a continent has reported many cases even though the health departments (especially in South Africa) do not release the ethnicity of the people who have the virus.
One thing we can learn is that the virus has been reported in 6 of the 7 habitable continents, it is epidemic and has proved to have no boundary based on skin.
