"The fact that this topic is not very widely covered makes me concerned"

Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka has called out Coronavirus-related attacks on the Asian community.

The three-time Grand Slam Champion wrote on Twitter, “the amount of hate, racism, and blame for COVID towards the Asian community is disgusting. The fact that this topic is not very widely covered makes me concerned.”

“I only found videos and information because I was scrolling through my IG feed and by some algorithm it appeared.”

A series of attacks on elderly Asian people in America were recently caught on camera.

Most recently, a 70-year-old grandmother was knocked to the ground and robbed on her way home from the bank in Oakland.

In the same city, a 91-year-old man was pushed to the ground by a suspect who was already on bail. The suspect also attacked two other elderly people on the same day.

Elsewhere in San Francisco, an 84-year-old Thai grandfather was pushed over and killed by a teenager.
