Community Business’ CEO Fern Ngai has expressed deep concern about the global rise in xenophobic attitudes towards people of Asian descent in the wake of the Coronavirus. Since the virus was declared a global public health emergency by the World Health Organization on 31st January, more than 16 cities in China have been placed on lockdown (affecting 45 million people) in an attempt to halt the spread of the virus.  Meanwhile, the non-profit has issued guidance to company leaders worldwide on how to remain inclusive, and prioritise employee physical and emotional wellbeing as the Coronavirus virus outbreak continues to spread.
