How can people stop stigma related to COVID-19?

Stigma and discrimination can occur when people associate an infectious disease with a specific population or group of people. Stigma hurts us all by creating more fear and anger towards individuals instead of the disease itself.

We can fight stigma by providing social support and communicating facts. COVID-19 is a disease that can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, nationality or background.
