The coronavirus pandemic does not discriminate. While it can affect certain communities to a greater degree, it is still a significant threat to everyone. Considering this, we cannot give anyone special treatment in how we fight the disease. Each community needs to do its part to slow the spread and protect themselves from sickness.
Beyond physical health, the pandemic has affected everyone economically, emotionally, and socially. No single demographic has been able to escape the pressures of the disease and lockdown. While Asian communities may feel increased prejudice, it is likely just a few isolated racist incidents and not an endemic. Unfortunately, we cannot give them special treatment under the circumstances, as everyone faces increased challenges during the global crisis.
