More than 2,100 anti-Asian American hate incidents related to COVID-19 were reported across the country over a three-month time span between March and June, according to advocacy groups that compile the data.
On Wednesday, the advocacy groups released an analysis of the incidents reported through June 18 in California, where about 40 percent of the 2,120 hate incidents took place.
Of the 832 incidents reported in California, many included anti-Asian slurs and references to China and the coronavirus.
Of the 583 people who reported their gender, Asian-American women reported almost twice as many incidents of discrimination and harassment as men.
Some assailants have displayed virulent animosity of China and have parroted Mr. Trump’s “Chinese virus” term, the groups found.
