Despite condemning President Trump for calling COVID-19 a “Chinese virus,” foreign media are using a xenophobic anti-Britain cartoon to portray the virus while referring to the UK as “the island of the plague ”.
Anti-British sentiment was sparked following the closure of dozens of countries on their borders to the British in response to the discovery of a new ‘mutant’ strain of the virus in the UK.
Such steps were taken despite the fact that the “new” strain was in Brazil eight months ago and is already circulating around the world.
While the media has denounced President Trump and others as “racist” for calling the virus a “Chinese virus” or “Wuhan virus” according to its origins, apparently humiliating the British on the same premise is perfectly acceptable .
Media: Trump is racist for calling this the ‘Chinese virus’.
Also media: PLAGUE ISLAND BRITAIN! pic.twitter.com/xyy7enLAUB

Indeed, many of the same people who have berated others as fanatics for referring to the virus in this way are responsible for the repeated “plague island” trend on social media in recent days.
Countless left-wing media like The Guardian also seem to appreciate the opportunity to label the UK a horror film, which is politically timely given that Brexit negotiations with the EU are at a crucial stage.
Now foreign media have jumped on the bandwagon, with German publications describing COVID as a viral particle wearing an ox hat emblazoned with a Union Jack.
But remember, if you dare to talk about bat soup or call it the “China virus”, you are a despicable racist.
