President Biden has signed in four new executive orders that are aimed at combating racism in the US. One order bans the use of "xenophobic" references such as "China virus".

The new executive order directs government agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services to find xenophobic references throughout public guidelines or policies and immediately remove them. CBS News reported the new executive order is aimed to "examine whether there are xenophobic references like 'China virus' in any existing policies, directives or government websites published by the Trump administration."

According to the order, "The Federal Government must recognize that it has played a role in furthering these xenophobic sentiments through the actions of political leaders, including references to the COVID-19 pandemic by the geographic location of its origin." The order also explains that these references have stoked "unfounded fears and perpetuated stigma about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders". These fears have contributed to "increasing rates of bullying, harassment, and hate crimes against AAPI persons."
