Chinese Mistreatment of African Nationals Over Covid-19

Multiple news sources are reporting the mistreatment of African nationals in China. These mistreatments include multiple forced coronavirus testing without receiving results, evictions, and arbitrary 14-day quarantines. Many African ambassadors are calling on China to address these issues while China maintains it is simply enforcing “anti-virus  measures on anyone that enters” from across “national border, regardless of nationality, race, or gender.”

Not all African countries are joining in this complaint, with Zimbabwe dismissing the “accusation that Africans were being deliberately targeted.”
