Through his Mircroblogging site (Twitter), Dr Tedros said this was a time for unity in the face of one common enemy COVID-19.
In a Facebook post, Mr Mok said a man, who was with three or four other men and one woman, said something about “coronavirus” before punching him in the face.
He said another member of the group then said: “I don’t want your coronavirus in my country,” before hitting him on the nose and causing blood to splatter on the pavement. The group then ran off before the police arrived.
