Major U.S. universities ban saying ‘Chinese virus’

Diversity officials for the University of California system have banned using “Chinese virus” to refer to the pandemic that originated in the communist nation, instructing students, staff and faculty to discourage others from using the term as well.

The Council of Chief Diversity Officers released a statement instructing everyone in the system to “reject racism, sexism, xenophobia and all hateful or intolerant speech, both in person and online.”

“Be an ‘up-stander,’ and discourage others from engaging in such behavior,” the officers said.
