MERS from Jordan in Middle East in 2012 and later a disaster in South Korea with a 35% fatality rate. 186 were infected and 38 died in South Korea.It was also a strain of coronavirus.

On October 20, 2010, an outbreak of cholera was confirmed in Haiti for the first time in more than a century. This cholera outbreak is the worst in recent history with over 665,000 cases and 8,183 deaths.


2009 H1N1 Swine flu, which was first detected in US, infected 60.8 million people and killed between 151,700 and 575,400 worldwide during the first year the virus circulated.

Ebola outbreak in West Africa started in Guinea then moved across land borders to Sierra Leone and Liberia. From 2014 to 2016, a total of 28,616 cases of EVD (Ebola virus disease) and 11,310 deaths were reported in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone alone.

The world has seen disasters and stood with the affected countries without declaring their citizens outcasts from the rest of humanity.

So why demonize the Chinese over coronavirus?

Let's stand with humanity like never before by standing with China, and especially the Chinese people.
