A Singaporean student was assaulted by a group of men and one woman over coronavirus-related racism in London.

Jonathan Mok, a 23-year-old, took to Facebook this morning (3rd March) to share about what happened on the day of the incident.

Mok was walking past the group of men (and woman) when one of them looked at him and said “coronavirus”.

“I don’t want your coronavirus in my country,” said another one of the youths who punched him again in the face, which caused his nose to bleed and splatter blood all over the pavement.
