Have not heard of any similar incidents with Italians despite large outbreak there and probably more travelers to/from Italy than Wuhan.

HaHa! Right. Spraying febreeze against bad odors is now a "hate" crime.

Yeah and Chinese don't burn Japanese car imports, beat up legal blacks in guangzhou, kill black university students over dating, beat up Japanese over senkakku, beat up foreigners without any repercussions (to the contrary the foreigner gets in trouble and deported) start fights overseas. As we speak right now they are telling their people the virus is America's faulty and to prepare for "revenge". The initially angry Chinese at the govt have diverted their anger to foreigners. This "news" only encourages them to hurt foreigners more. Stop the fake news it is very very dangerous.

First off that guy an idiot and he will probably get the kung-flu before that asian man does. But be mindful when reading many of these racist against chinese over coronavirus articles. Many have been proven to be chinese propaganda. They show up in Chinese state run media and shortly after are parroted by western journalists who tow the line for the chinese or Chinas 50 cent army. Its basically another tactic the are using to shut us up amd stop us from criticizing the CCP.

Oh and the Asians stocking up on guns. Funny they want to take everyone else's. Time to deport all chinese. Other Asians can stay but deport and ban all Chinese people and businesses.

There's a reason 28 days later was heavily influenced by the panic and fallout during the 1918 Spanish Flu...fear during a pandemic brings out the worst in people.
