While Italy are hard hit by the coronavirus and the whole of Italy is largely closed down, the 22-year-old Emanuelle Petrini from Viareggio in Italy, painted a corona-mask in his face, which has gone viral.
The young Italian has simultaneously used her make-up talent to send an important message.
This writes the british media of the Metro, who have spoken with the young Italian.
Emanuele Petrini has also put a spread out on his Instagram, where he among other things writes the following:
'Coronavirus does not mean that you are allowed to be racist against people from asia. Stop spreading your hatred by using excuses. It is old-fashioned and boring.'

Coronavirus doesn't means being racist towards Asians. Aids doesn’t means homophobia. transgender doesn't means transphobia. And being myself doesn't means that you can hate me. Stop spreading your hate using excuses, it's so old and boring, take your responsibilities for once. THIS IS ALL MAKEUP.

To the british media Metro tells Emanuelle:
- I have recently seen the Italian to be very rude and coarse, opposite the chinese because of coronaviruses. I have seen ignorante Italian shouting terrible words against the chinese and f.ex. shouting that it is their fault, and that they should return to their own country, says Emanuelle and adds:
- now Hold up to give the chinese the blame. It is stupid. There are people that constantly die.
Emanuelle hope that his white corona-mask-lookup will help to stop prejudice and racism just as quickly as the virus spreads.
- I hope that people will understand that we all are the same, and coronaviruses, is not the chinese people's sake. It could have happened anywhere. I would very much like to see less fear and more work to create a cure for the disease. All nations must work together. Stop spreading the hatred. Start helping each other instead.
