An essay entitled "Something's Not Right Here Folks" has garnered over one million views on Chinese social media. It compares reactions to the novel coronavirus outbreak with the H1N1 outbreak in the US 11 years ago.
Its author, Mario Cavolo, is an Italian-American writer, artist, speaker, and communications adviser who's been in China for 20 years. He wrote in the article: "But I do know this: It needs to stop. This vicious, political, xenophobic, racist attacks, and smearing of all things China needs to stop." The video is an interview in which he elaborated on what made him decide to write this passage.
