“A lot of restaurants  are feeling the pain of racism, where people are literally not patroning Chinese restaurants because of just straight up racism around the coronavirus.” – U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Twitter, March 11, 2020

“As the coronavirus has spread from China to other countries, anti-Asian discrimination has followed closely behind, manifesting in plummeting sales at Chinese restaurants, near-deserted Chinatown districts and racist bullying against people perceived to be Chinese.” – Natalie Escobar, NPR, March 4, 2020

| NY Post – A shrimp peddler at the Chinese market where the coronavirus pandemic likely began has been identified as one of the first victim’s of the disease — and possibly “patient zero.”

The 57-year-old woman, identified by The Wall Street Journal as Wei Guixian, was the first person from the now-notorious Huanan market in Wuhan to test positive for the deadly bug.

“A 2011 survey reported that food safety was the most concerned issue in Chinese people, surpassing public security, traffic safety, medical safety, etc.” – US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, 2014 Sep

On December 16, Wei went to Wuhan Union Hospital — one of the city’s biggest hospitals — to get checked out.

A doctor there described her illness as “ruthless” and told her several other people from the same market had already come in with similar symptoms.

By the end of the month, she was quarantined when doctors finally established the link between the emerging bug and the seafood market, the Chinese outlet reported.

A Dec. 31 statement from the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission revealed that Wei was among the first 27 patients to test positive for COVID-19, and one of 24 cases with direct links to the seafood market … Read more.
