The US consulate in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou has warned about discrimination faced by Africans because of fears they could be spreading the coronavirus.
The consulate said the Chinese police had ordered bars and restaurants not to serve people who appeared to be of African origin.
It has warned African-Americans to stay away from the city.
For several days, there have been reports of Africans being evicted from their homes, barred from staying in hotels and forced into quarantine.
With nowhere to go, some are sleeping in the streets.
China’s foreign ministry has already acknowledged that there have been “occasional incidents and misunderstandings”.
