Africans in China are reportedly being avoided in the major cities of China amid fears they may be spreading the COVID-19 infection.
Three Ghanaian students, living in Beijing and Chengdu, have given troubling accounts of how foreigners, especially Blacks are now at the receiving end of xenophobic attacks in the Asian city, especially in the cities of Guangzhou and Beijing.
While some are allegedly being evicted from their places of residence, others are being shunned and avoided by the Chinese community and others being forced to take COVID-19 tests, though they have no travel history for the past three months or come into contact with a COVID-19 patient.
Joel Asante Baafi, a married man with a daughter, living in the heart of Beijing city, told ABC News in an exclusive interview on Friday, April 10, 2020, that he was evicted from his residence at around 6 am on Thursday by ten (10) Chinese policemen whose only explanation to them [Joel and his family] was that they want to protect Beijing from getting the COVID-19 through the foreigners living there.
According to him, no test was conducted. Whether on him, his wife or his 4-year-old daughter to indeed prove that he had the virus before the said action was taken against them at the crack of dawn.
