The outbreak of deadly coronavirus has bred stigmatization as a close relative of a coronavirus patient has narrated how people don’t want to associate with them anymore.
A boy [name witheld] speaking to Joy News disclosed that no one wants to come close to him and his family anymore.
He explained that such stigmatisation started after his father’s diagnosis and subsequent quarantining.
He said despite all other family members testing negative for the virus, society wants nothing to do with them.
“If people see that anybody from this house has gone out, they will even run away and sometimes they will be mocking you”
“No one comes to our shop to buy anything anymore, and as a result of that, my father asked my grandmother to close the shop,” he lamented.
