I don't remember anyone talking about the cases in the US or around the world ever? Only China. The plague exists on all continents except Oceania, and as for the US there's generally between 1-17 cases a year. Also it's cureable these days with antibiotics so way to make it misleading.

Anything virus related is now reported as some kind of news/breaking news.

Given the situation with Covid, people are concerned about things like this now, so naturally all kinds of media outlets will report on it for the clicks.

True but there was a lot less attention towards the actual small outbreak in the Congo in 2020 vs the one case in China

Probably because it's China. People were talking about another Swine flu epidemic from China a few days ago too. I guess it's because this Covid originated from there, people are just focused on all things China-flu related.

That's what bothers me the most, it's pretty clear racism right there but no one bats an eye.

news like this has been surfacing since the virus broke ou. it also reinforces and fuels the agression and hatred against Chinese people which they still get because of corona, now people believe and expect the worst out of there
