For all of you to lazy to type words into your search bar....

Quote:The director general of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, noted that the new name makes no reference to any of the people, places or animals associated with the coronavirus. The goal was to avoid stigma.

Under international guidelines, the W.H.O. “had to find a name that did not refer to a geographical location, an animal, an individual or group of people, and which is also pronounceable and related to the disease,”

I think GP was commenting on the absurdity of the PC language in the article.

Clear enough?

Thank you. Cant believe this was still going round and round here. Maybe now we can get back to the pandemic. The wuhan caused pandemic, in china, from bats and animals and shit filth market conditions, hows that for stigma?
