Today, we will be playing an audio essay, written and produced by us. Last week we spoke about the racist implications of problematic discourse regarding the novel coronavirus. This week, we will be discussing social distancing. Firstly, we want to acknowledge not everyone is in the position where they can choose to self-isolate and stay at home. This audio essay aims to encourage who can stay at home to do so, in order to flatten the curve of infection. Additionally, we will be updating listeners on the latest events regarding Canada, McGill, and COVID-19. We want to issue a content warning as we briefly discuss anti-asian sentiment.
