Health care worker spews racist venom about coronavirus carriers and foreigners

A health worker did a huge disservice to the countless medical professionals risking their lives everyday to save others.

She posted a photo of herself making an ugly face under the caption “my face when I hear someone speaking foreign language inside the hospital…go away, you corona carrier.

The picture was posted by a woman who lives in Little Rock, AR. In her comments, she seems to think the woman in the photo is in her area. However, that is unclear at this time.

The statement is not only racist, but without any semblance of truth. Nothing in the data indicates immigrants are more likely to carry the virus than others.

Secondly, the code of any health care worker is not to run away from someone who’s sick, but to care for them and make them better.

Thirdly, being bilingual is an asset, not something to be mocked or denigrated.

  1. RE: Health care worker spews racist venom about coronavirus carriers and foreigners: Well think they finally have a to show their true colors. They can no longer hide how they truly feel even in the medical community . It’s always been there is just that Covid19 is now exposing it to the world. We can no longer pretend it doesn’t affect us.

  2. RE: Health care worker spews racist venom about coronavirus carriers and foreigners: “They?” Is that not the same blanket she used in her hatefulness?

  3. RE: Health care worker spews racist venom about coronavirus carriers and foreigners: The current President has made it ok for all of these people to come out of the woodwork. Racists aren’t afraid to let their racism be known now. If the Pres says it, it must be ok. I served in the military for this country. I’ve made friends in other countries, with different ethnicities, but lately, I’m so ashamed of how this country is- it’s racist and it’s not fair to everyone. It’s very sad to say that not everyone is treated equally. I want to live in a world where everyone is treated equally, where no one is looked down upon because of the color of their skin or where they come from, where their religion doesn’t matter because we are all one race.

    • RE: Health care worker spews racist venom about coronavirus carriers and foreigners: This, as usual, has nothing to do with Trump, and everything to do with an individual who clearly has issues….as do you.

  4. RE: Health care worker spews racis venom about coronavirus carriers and foreigners: To Asian Americans and anyone being treated unfairly, the times may be difficult, but you will get through it,
    along with everybody else, and the country will be stronger and better off as a result.
