IAmNotAVirus Right, I know that the festive season was over some time ago, and the next big holiday is months away, but I still feel the start of this year is just so surreal. When I got back from London, the Orthodox Christmas was just under way here in Russia. Everywhere was beautifully decked out with Christmas trees & lights. Just when I thought this time I could have double Christmas plus one Spring Festival, the coronavirus broke out and spread so quickly that even people living miles away from the epicenter were freaked out, and some even started acting insensibly. ⁣ ⁣ It broke my heart when I heard my Chinese friend here got called the β€œv-word” and rejected by an Uber driver. Luckily, that kind of attack has not (never, let’s hope) happened to me. But since the epidemic outbreak, I've started feeling mega self-conscious every time I’m out on the streets. But what makes me feel better though is that still, some people come up to me asking for directions, for a lighter or to take photos for them. But sometimes I just feel down and so concerned about the stigma associated with the Asian community, and I just wish and wish that this virus could be wiped off the face of the earth very soon!

    But it’s even more tricky in Europe now

    Well, Russia always was intolerant and full of bias, so no wonder.

    What happened with your friend was really sad. Such weird incidents are happening everywhere these days... schools, colleges. Kids are getting bullied and harassed. But as you said, we all must pray to get rid of this phase soon.

    That’s is terrible. I hate that people right away stereotype and harass others for things out of our control.
