China stands accused of inhumane treatment of Africans during the corona virus outbreak that includes forceful testing, quarantine and evictions. So is this just another form of racism? or is Beijing just trying to curb the pandemic?

They are China’s key trading partners but some African leaders have been angered over Beijing’s reported discrimination against their citizens and demanded answers from the Chinese government over reports Africans are being targeted because of fears they could spread coronavirus. A recent rise in covid 19 infections in China has been linked to people from abroad.

Chinese government is worried there could be a second wave and has stepped up its scrutiny of foreigners. African students and expatriates have reportedly been evicted from their homes tested for coronavirus several times and are being shunned in public. The incidents have sparked a diplomatic route with the African Union, African governments and the United States. Chinese ambassadors have been summoned by African officials in different countries and a rare open critique of Beijing the speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives tweeted a video of himself pricing its envoy on the reported ill treatment of Africans he was heard saying

“it’s almost undeflected talking but it’s because I’m upset about what’s going on”

The Speaker of the House asked the diplomats to explain scenes that have gone viral on social media platforms. The United States consulate in Gwangju has advised African Americans to stop traveling to the city and a statement had said this

“Police ordered bars and restaurants not to serve clients who appear to be of African origin local officials launched a round of mandatory test for kovat 19 followed by mandatory self quarantine for anyone with African contacts regardless of recent travel history, African Americans also have also reported that some businesses and hotels refused to do business with them”.

China says its policy towards Africa hasn’t changed and denies discrimination against what it calls its African brothers this is what the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson had to say about accusations made by the US

“Under the current situation where the international community urgently needs to work together and fight against the epidemic it is irresponsible and immoral for the US side to make those remarks and sow discord, we urged the u.s. to focus on containing the epidemic at home. Its attempt to drive a wedge between China and Africa’s relationship will never succeed”

In response to the recent African sides concerns regarding their citizens in Guangdong Province, the guangdong authorities have already conducted an investigation and taken a series of new measures. They said the issue will be properly solved through the joint efforts of China and Africa.

Gabriela Dillon a medical student from Uganda says:

“Life is better, life is back to wuhan, so far the locals it’s mostly the Chinese people who are able to go to the supermarkets and the banks and the shops are the foreigners not so much because we haven’t yet been cleared otherwise we’re able to we can get permission to leave their homes and walk around in the streets which is better than nothing so that’s our life is now”

So as far as getting permission these tests and screenings that are needed for her to go wherever she want it’s dealt differently with Chinese as opposed to foreigners.
