Sierra Leone China Foundation Calls for Global Destigmatization of China and Chinese
The Sierra Leone China Foundation is concerned about and perturbed by news of the global destigmatization of China and Chinese citizens in the wake of the corona virus pandemic.
The Foundation has learnt with dismay that China and its citizens are being unfairly targeted or stigmatized on the baseless consideration that the viral disease started in the country and was globally spread by its citizens. Globally, China and its people are being treated with utter disdain and ostracism, with many people refusing to interact with Chinese citizens or to do business with them. The Foundation unequivocally condemns this behaviour and calls on all to change that perception.
Viral diseases of such lethal nature are not peculiar to China. Stigmatizing the country and its citizens on the flimsy fact that the virus which has caused a global disaster emanated from there and from them is an unreasonable posture of thought and action.
The Foundation calls on all to continue to adhere to the preventative measures that have been announced by Governments the world over.

Long live Sierra Leone, Long live China, Let’s fight the coronavirus together
