The first outbreak of COVID-19 in Wuhan, China, spread rapidly to other Chinese cities and neighboring countries within a short period of time. Since the first outbreak of the epidemic, and the places with severe epidemics are all located in Asia, especially East Asia and Southeast Asia, such as China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and other places with "yellow race" as the majority of residents, plus China There are frequent incidents of travelers infecting the virus to other countries because of their travel to other countries, so the source of this infectious disease is inextricably linked with the faces of Chinese descent.
But the reason for generalization banner design is much more than that. Since the epidemic gradually heated up at the end of January, many overseas Chinese who do not live in the epidemic area and live around the world, whether because of hearing news at home, news from relatives and friends, etc., have been wearing masks in their daily life for fear and epidemic prevention purposes. . Wearing masks in East Asia is not a rare thing in itself. Due to various reasons, such as allergies, colds, empty houses, and wind protection, we are actually used to wearing masks in our daily life, and there are masks with various patterns and materials.
But in Europe, even medical staff in medical institutions and clinics usually don't wear masks, let alone seeing people wearing masks on the road, which is very rare. Therefore, when a large number of Chinese in Europe suddenly wore masks, an unknown panic pervaded the society and could not help but slowly hit. Coupled with the fact that everyone wears not only general masks, but also anti-epidemic masks such as N95 that many people may have never actually seen in Europe, the atmosphere of panic and doubt naturally rises.
