The recent outbreak of the Coronavirus has made everyone paranoid. With the threat of the deadly virus potentially spreading to western countries, people worldwide are racially profiling and blaming Chinese and even Pakistani-origin Chinese for the virus.

A doctor in Canada took to Twitter to share an unfortunate incident her son experienced at the hands of school bullies amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Dr. Nadia Alam, an anesthetist from Ontario, revealed that the children at school are picking on her child for being Pakistani-Chinese.

“Today my son was cornered at school by kids who wanted to ‘test’ him for #Coronavirus just because he is half-Chinese. They chased him. Scared him. And made him cry,”

Racism and Coronavirus

Ever since the deadly Coronavirus began to make headlines a couple of weeks ago, Asian people in different parts of the globe have been experiencing racist attacks. In her tweet, the mother of four from Georgetown, Ontario was apparently reminded of her own experience of being bullied as a Pakistani child growing up.

“I was the same age when I was bullied for being Pakistani,” she added. “It’s 2020. I thought things had changed by now… ?”

Dr. Nadia Alam’s tweet, which has been liked and retweeted thousands of times, has received messages of support from other Twitter users.
