When Covid-19 outbreaks initially started in China, it has led to some racist attacks on Chinese people (and other Asians) around the world. Recently the spread of Covid-19 is picking up speed in Europe, the United States and other regions, the outbreaks in China seem to be under control. China reported only a few cases every day and most are imported cases (inbound travelers from overseas). Now there are more and more restaurants and stores reopening to the public, but foreigners in China found that they are not allowed to enter some places just because they are not Chinese.
