What It’s Like Being Asian During Coronavirus Chaos
The novel coronavirus is causing a lot anxiety around the world as the number of deaths and people infected continues to rise exponentially, but the virus is shrouded in mystery that’s triggering a lot of misinformation and fear.
Not only is the coronavirus a health threat, it’s also setting off xenophobic and racist behavior around the world as Asians are being targeted in discriminating and even violent incidents.
In this episode of “The May Lee Show”, May talks to a medical expert to find out more about the coronavirus to separate fact from fiction. May also discusses with a psychologist about the impact racism is having on the Asian community.
The first guest, Dr. Gregory Moran, is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the UCLA School of Medicine.
The second guest, Dr. Sherry Wang, is an assistant professor of Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University.
