Canadian research report points out that stigmatization conceals Chinese’s anti epidemic efforts

In a covid-19 study released by York University in Toronto in early August August 12th,

, a new research report, showed that the initiatives taken by Chinese communities in the fight against the new crown epidemic were largely obscured by stigmatization of Chinese. Covid-19,

Aada Mamuji, a scholar from York University, was supported by the National Institutes of health in Canada. He led the team to study the discrimination and fear of Chinese communities in the first few months of the new crown epidemic in Toronto, Canada’s largest city, and Nairobi, capital of Nairobi. < / P > < p > the study found that, in fact, many people in the Chinese community had issued epidemic prevention warnings and taken preventive measures even before becoming the target of unfair treatment. The epidemic provides opportunities for Chinese in Greater Toronto to participate in public health actions and help curb the spread of the virus. In Nairobi, despite the “fear of China” during the epidemic period, overseas Chinese still showed the ability to contribute to the local anti epidemic society. < p > < p > mamuji believes that although many cases of stigmatization are well known, there is still a lack of social recognition of the anti epidemic ability of Chinese communities. For example, she said, Chinese supermarkets and shops had implemented this measure weeks before the mandatory wearing of masks was required in many parts of Ontario. < / P > < p > the report also points out that the change in the attitude of Canadian public health officials towards wearing masks has also led to the stigmatization of Chinese who have been wearing masks for a long time. < / P > < p > the report also said that although the first case in Canada did come to Toronto from China, these early cases were not the main source of the spread of the epidemic in Canada. As of mid April this year, a total of 1201 cases had been found among international immigrants in Ontario, most of them came from the United States and Europe, and only 5 cases had a history of traveling in China. In an interview with Canadian television on the 12th, mamuji said that in fact, the Chinese community has helped Canada cope with the epidemic situation, “if they don’t take preventive measures so early, I don’t know how high the number will be.”.
