So is it correct to call the virus coronavirus, and the disease covid-19? Or not?Actually, from my reading, the virus is SARS-CoV-2, which is a strain of Coronavirus, while the disease is COVID19-19.The VIRUS is called coronavirus (or novel coronavirus). The DISEASE is called covid-19. If you look at my posts, I use those terms distinctly, not interchangeably. I'm not sure where you got the idea that Chinese is not a race -- how do you define a race? And the "Spanish" flu that killed millions in 1918-1919 wasn't from Spain.That is not it's name- it's actually Covid 19 and most have adopted that moniker.Yes, still racist. Why not call it the coronavirus, since that is its name?If we started calling the Chinese virus the Wuhan virus would that satisfy you? Or still RACIST!?Is Zika called the Brazilian virus?Zika is Racist!!As if Chinese people somehow uniquely carry the virus. You're a racist pig.Good question.When will Italy start using chloroquine for their coronavirus patients?
what are they waiting for????
I just don't understand it.
They'll be reconsidering having 30,000 Chinese migrant workers
in their garment factories from now on.
Hope they learn their lessons....they wanted all their clothes to say Made in Italy.... instead to Made in China...so they brought in thousands of Chinese workers.
And that's where Italy is now...because of their stupidity ...they are in the midst of Hell.
Oh well...later rather than sooner ....they will understand (we hope)
Regardless, calling it the "Wuhan virus" or the "Chinese Virus" is not racist. Chinese is not a race, it's a nation.
Pandemics have a long history of being named after their place of origin. This is simply more Covfefe-16.....
