Seems they didn't want to offend...some people? So who was offended by
"Coronavirus?" People who drink lite Mexican beer?? The heads of WHO
should all be fired or in JAIL for the way they've handled this.
"Having a name matters to prevent the use of other names that can be
inaccurate or stigmatising."
The idea that they're worrying about politically correct sensitivity in
the middle of a pandemic is peak 2020 and we're only in February.
Just call it Captain Trips or Project Blue and be done with it.
If the Coronavirus wasn't scary enough, now it gets PC so as to not be so
racist towards China. The new name -- "Covid 19", is apparently less racist
against Asians somehow so that's what we're rolling with now. The Media
usually blows up "pandemic" stories... however, much less so this time.
Should that make us scared? If that doesn't, maybe these facts will:
China says normal surgical masks won't work, need heavier ones
It spreads through eye contact and pipes (like in apartments)
It can live for 9 days on surfaces
You can get it more than once
Chinese using drones for quarantine now
Could spread to 60% of world according to The Guardian
Sky News says "greater global threat than terrorism"
Watching Democrats come up with schemes to "catch Trump" is like
watching Wile E. Coyote trying to catch Road
