Chinese group gives away free masks for Filipinos in Manila

MANILA, Philippines – Amid bullying and fear that Pinoys have against Chinese people due to the new coronavirus scare, a Chinese group recently went viral for giving away free masks for Filipinos in Manila! The kind gesture was met with mixed reactions, but more Pinoys appreciated the group’s efforts.

The world is in a state of panic over the novel coronavirus (2019-nCov) which originated from Wuhan, China. More infectious but less severe and fatal than the 2003 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak, the novel coronavirus still remains a scary virus that led to a lockdown in Wuhan as officials scramble to contain the outbreak.


Because the virus originated from China and has spread across the world mainly due to Chinese travelers, people have come to fear the Chinese or those who look similar to Chinese people, including Koreans.

There have been a number of stories about Chinese people getting bullied just because they are Chinese. Many Pinoys fear they might get the deadly virus from any Chinese they meet; thus, a lot of them would go as far as run away when they meet any Chinese on the road.
