Americans affected by CoronaVirus
There are reports that Chinese government is trying to silence the people who were trying to inform others and raise an alarm about the outbreak early on. In fact this effort to stop reporting of this outbreak has led to so many people getting infected with the coronavirus, including citizens of USA.
The reports of people of other countries and united states getting infected with coronavirus and being silenced by Chinese government might create a backlash for the heavily censored media and social media of the country.
