Tensions are running high in the Chinese city of Guangzhou over coronavirus rumours.
According to community leaders hundreds of Africans remain unable to go home after being evicted from their homes and hotels over fears the coronavirus was spreading in African communities.
The Guangdong provincial government has responded to concerns of discrimination by calling China and Africa good friends, partners and brothers.
It said it attached “great importance to some African countries’ concerns and is working promptly to improve” its way of operating.
But in Guangzhou many are concerned over the Africans’ treatment. (Text and photo courtesy BBC)
