We cannot allow the COVID-19 to serve as a vehicle for racism or xenophobia. Hate crimes against Chinese people have soared in the UK during COVID-19 crisis. Asian people across the U.S and Canada are reporting more racist incidents and hate crimes. Together, we can help avoid discrimination and stigma around coronavirus.

Additionally, homes for hosting are difficult to find as residents self-isolate.
