Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) led a group of Democrats in a resolution that denounces the use of “Chinese virus” and similar terms amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bill, which was submitted last week, condemns “all forms of anti-Asian sentiment” related to the coronavirus, citing the “dramatic” increase in reports of racist and xenophobic attacks against the group since January.
