Racist Attack in London

A 23-year-old East Asian man who used to study in London has spoken out about racism linked to the contagious Coronavirus after suffering facial injuries in a racist attack in London.

He posted this assault on his Facebook account

His name is Jonathan Mok, he wrote about this ordeal in a public post on his Facebook account a few days back where he has given all the details how he was attacked by a group of people on Oxford Street which is a busy shopping area in the centre of the British capital.

He got very much injured due to this incident

Jonathan Mok said he was attacked in London which caused him many injuries to his right eye. He also posted two photographs of his face on social media, explaining “One image was taken in the mirror and hence, the laterally inverted image. The image that seems so be much swollen was taken as a selfie, and the bruising only developed in the following day.” The photo was taken by him after the day of the assault. The attack comes at a time of increasing xenophobia against people of East Asian appearance in the UK and around the world.

“The guy who tried to kick me then said, ‘I don’t want your coronavirus in my country’, before swinging another sucker punch at me, which resulted in my face exploding with blood (from my nose),” wrote Mok.

London police are investigating this matter

Mok said doctors told him the assailants had left him with “a few fractures” in his face and he might need surgery. London’s police are also investigating his case.

They said: “Enquiries continue to identify the suspects; including an assessment of available CCTV,” said police in a statement. “There has been no arrest at this stage.”

This is not the first time he is being attacked

Mok said this was not the first time he had suffered the racist attack in the past few weeks and he wanted to highlight this important issue in front of everyone.

“I’ve studied in London for the past 2 years and every year, I am subjected to racist remarks (whether innocent or made with malice),” he wrote. “To those people who told me that London isn’t racist, think again.”

Mok’s case is one of those incidents that have happened in the UK during the global coronavirus outbreak, and hate crime awareness group Stop Hate UK recently raised concerns.

“Stop Hate UK has recently received an increasing number of calls, across our helpline areas, from people experiencing racism, discrimination and verbal abuse, arising from perceptions that they are members of the Chinese community and therefore likely to be carriers of the coronavirus,” said the organization in a statement.

“We find this deeply concerning and we want our Helpline areas to know that we are here to help, advise and reassure anyone affected by such incidents.”

The US is witnessing the rise of such incidents happening

US ha continuously been seeing the rise of such discrimination with experts blaming ignorance and misinformation for racist and xenophobic attacks against people who appear to be East Asian.

“With news of the coronavirus, we’ve seen an uptick in fear of people who look like this,” said Rosalind Chou, a sociology professor at Georgia State University. “Real people are affected.”

Jack Ma

China’s richest man Jack Ma who is the founder of the famous e-commerce company, Alibaba is all set to donate 1.8 million face masks and 100,000 Coronavirus test kits to European countries to help combat the outbreak of contagious endemic Coronavirus. He also announced his plan on a Chinese social media site, Weibo as well. He said that he will donate the masks and kits to those countries that are severely affected by the outbreak including Italy and Spain.

Jack Ma said, “Fortunately, although cross-country transport for counter-epidemic goods has been difficult, we learned that the eWTP (The Electronic World Trade Platform) hub in Europe’s Liege Airport is operating well and can act as a lifeline to assist us to deliver our continuous aids to Europe to those in need.

“Although we live thousands of miles apart, we will race against the clock in hopes of providing emergency help to [the countries in need] and overcoming difficulties together.” – Jack MA

This is not for the first time Ma has helped tackle the Covid-19 outbreak. In January also, he has donated 100 million Yuan to the Chinese scientists who are working on a vaccine for the virus.

Jack ma said that these funds will be used to support the development of a coronavirus vaccine adding that 20 million Yuan would go to both the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering for the current research and development of virus vaccines.

The foundation said in this support, “The remaining funds will be used to support domestic and foreign top scientific research institutions and researchers to collaborate.”

Even the World Health Organisation (WHO) has also declared this virus as a Pandemic which is not a word to use lightly or carelessly. It is a word that, if misused, can cause unreasonable fear, or unjustified acceptance that the fight is over, leading to unnecessary suffering and death”.

“Describing the situation as a pandemic does not change WHO’s assessment of the threat posed by this coronavirus. It doesn’t change what the WHO is doing, and it doesn’t change what countries should do.

“We have never before seen a pandemic sparked by a coronavirus. And we have never before seen a pandemic that can be controlled at the same time. WHO has been in full response mode since we were notified of the first cases”.

“We have called every day for countries to take urgent and aggressive action. We have rung the alarm bell loud and clear.”
