CNET: The ‘Chinese virus’ label has led to violence and death. It needs to stop. “It’s a statement backed up by hard science. A study conducted by UC San Francisco found that more than half of the tweets including the hashtag #chinesevirus also used an anti-Asian hashtag. Only a fifth of the tweets that included the #covid19 hashtag showed anti-Asian sentiment. The study had looked at the tweets from a week before to a week after Trump tweeted the words ‘Chinese virus’ on March 16.”
