Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi demanded an official apology from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on social media Tuesday night; saying his use of the term “Chinese Coronavirus” is “bigoted” against Asians and Asian Americans.

“Everything you need to know about the Chinese coronavirus can be found on one, regularly-updated website,” posted McCarthy on social media.

“Bigoted statements which spread misinformation and blame Asians and the Asian American community for #coronavirus make us all less safe. @GOPLeader must delete this tweet and apologize immediately,” fired-back Pelosi.

“Viruses don’t have nationalities. This is racist,” added Rep. Ilhan Omar.

It’s common for health officials and government workers to include the location of origin or first diagnosis for many diseases to differentiate them from similar strains.

Examples include: Spanish Flu, West Nile Virus, Hong Kong Flu of 1968, German Measles, Asian Flu of 1956, Ebola Fever, Rocky Mountain Fever, and others.
