(ECNS)--A Chinese man living in Florence took to the street on Feb. 2, 2020.
He covered his eyes with a sash, put on a mask and stood there in silence.
Beside him was a sign with words "I am not a virus. I'm a human. Eradicate the prejudice."
He hopes that people will give up their discrimination amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.
Some people passed him by directly, while others stopped to take photos. Some chose to walk up and hug him.
Many people took off his mask and sash and gave him a big hug.
