China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism issued a notice on Monday that urged Chinese tourists not to travel to the United States, suggesting that visitors from China were being unfairly targeted amid the global response to the coronavirus outbreak.
The announcement drew a number of supportive comments on Chinese social media, where videos that appeared to show abuse of Chinese travelers due to the outbreak had been widely shared recently.
“Is there anybody who wants to go traveling now? Better stay at home than go out in this critical moment!” one user commented on Weibo.
