Asian guy beaten up in London, attackers say ‘I don’t want your coronavirus in my country’


A Singaporean young guy was beaten up badly in London by a group of attackers. The 23-year-old Asian man was told to leave the UK alone as attackers don’t want his ‘coronavirus’ spreading in the area.

Jonathan Mok suffered brutal facial injuries as he recalled the misfortune he had endured through a lengthy Facebook post.

Mok said that around 9:15 p.m. on Feb. 24, he was walking through Oxford Street when he was assaulted by three to four young men and a woman, whom he described to have “seemed no older than 20 years old, but were all more than a head taller than me.”

“I walked past a group of young men, when I saw one of them look at me (just as he walked past me) and said something to me, which I could make out the word ‘coronavirus.’ I was stunned and turned around to have a look at the man [who] made the statement,” Mok recounted.

“He was still staring at me as he walked past and [realized] I was looking at him. He shouted ‘Don’t you dare look at me, you ____’ (I could not catch the last word because of the accent),” he added. “I was shocked and angry because he directed a racist remark at me and had the audacity to shout at me like I had wronged him.”
