Addressing COVID-19 Anti-Chinese Stigma

As a result of COVID-19, members of ethnically Chinese communities (Taiwan, Hong Kong, mainland China) around the world faced various challenges affecting their personal wellbeing, including access to timely, accurate information, impacts to livelihood, and experiences of discrimination.  Individuals from these communities also demonstrated strengthened networks and the adoption of public health strategies long before mandated restrictions were put into place.

Two globalized urban centres with significant Chinese communities are in Toronto, Canada, and Nairobi, Kenya. The research team conducted over 100 interviews with members of Chinese diaspora communities in the GTA and in Nairobi to better understand their lived experience and coping strategies during the early phases of the pandemic.
