Quote

Dr. Leana Wen says she has received backlash over her ethnicity after appearing on air to discuss the coronavirus pandemic...."Telling me to go back to my own country. Saying that I should admit that it's, quote, unquote, my people who are causing this virus. And I have friends and colleagues who are Asian-American doctors and nurses who patients are spitting on them and refusing to be treated by them because they are the ones who are apparently are carrying this virus."
