The New York City Health Department announced on Friday through its social media accounts that no cases of the deadly Corona Virus have been found in any part of the NY city. Nevertheless, concern over the Corona spread is impacting New York’s Asian communities.
It is not surprising to see people in the red-face, most of the public wearing surgical masks this time of year. But fear of the Corona Virus and news of quarantines that are being implemented elsewhere have increased this practice to new levels.
“The public wants to use a mask to prevent transmitting the virus from sick patients,” stated, Peter Koo-NYC Council Member.
Political leaders are pleading with the public not to use the Corona Virus as a reason to disgrace Chinese Americans here in the United States.
