When will people stop calling it the coronavirus. The virus is not called coronavirus... there are many other strains of coronaviruses besides Covid-19. That is all. Kthx

If you want to get real pedantic, the virus isn’t called COVID-19, either. That’s the disease the virus causes. The virus is SARS-CoV-2

Well yes but I would assume most conversations are referring to the disease and not the virus in specific

Let's just be glad we're not calling it Chinese Virus like Trump is.

COVID-19 just stands for Coronavirus Disease 2019...seems like you’re splitting hairs here, don’t you think?

Yeah, but if the name of that strain is just “Coronavirus Disease of 2019...” Is it not colloquial to say “the Coronavirus?”

I agree with you, OP. Especially since I’ve read people on here say “Wuhan virus is insensitive and racist.” Yet calling it the Corona virus is inconsiderate to people in Corona, New Mexico. Let’s all please refer to the virus by its official name. 🙏 Thank you!

I'm assuming this is satire, because it's called corona or "crown" virus for the protrusions on the virus' "head" But I really can't tell, thought I'd share either way.

Yes I imagine it must be very frustrating to work on the Corona account at the Mullen LA office right now. I still dont understand how the virus gets transferred by beer drinking—but it does. It suuure, sure does. So everyone remember not to buy Corona beer, because of Corona Virus. @Mullen, is it true thats why they named it that? Oh well, doesnt matter 😃

This is generalizing it but "Coronavirus" gets people's attention so they can be educated what exactly all this is. Start adding more scientific terms and people will mute out the conversation entirely. People can quickly associate "virus" to "bad". How much more time would you have to explain "COVID-19"?

My sister works at a company that is so backward and toxic it scares me. They didn’t have Skype before the pandemic and now use Zoom. She’s trying to get a laptop to WFH with b/c the one that they issued her is from 2005 and is a nightmare to work with, but her boss wants to save money and get her a desktop instead of a laptop b/c they won’t be working from home after COVID. However, he has no problem ordering the newest equipment and WFH himself even before COVID. All I gotta say is toxic.

*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??

This was posted somewhere else but seemed compelling enough to discuss…. The right wing political parties are using anti-vax, Covid denialism as an isolating issue to radicalize their base. This does not get them more votes, because these were already their supporters, but it does make them far more entrenched in their views because of the social sunk-cost of alienating them from everyone else. The absurdity and high social and real cost of this belief is actually the whole point. (Cont.)
