Beijing: China, which has been facing worldwide criticism over the Corona virus, is now embroiled in a new controversy. Africans living in southern China's largest city, Guangzhou, say they are being targeted to prevent the growing cases of people infected with the corona virus from abroad. Africans said they were suspected to be infected with the Coronavirus and were being forced out of their homes.
The African people said that they are being forcibly kept aside and they are being tested at the collective level. In the meantime, China has now given clarification on the dispute. China says it has mainly controlled the corona infection but cases related to the Nigerian community have recently come to light in Guangzhou. Due to many cases, local people and officials engaged in virus prevention are being accused of discriminating against the people of this community.
In an industrial centre with a population of 1.5 million, local authorities said that at least 8 people found infected were residents of Yueishiu, a city known as 'Little Africa'. Five of them are Nigerians. People have expressed their displeasure after reports of them visiting 8 restaurants and other public places instead of being in isolation in his house.
