Victoria Australia had lost control a month ago with nearly 1000 cases a day at its peak... we beat it back.

todays update 11 new cases all from known sources.

COVID-19.

The WHO issued virus naming conventions in 2015, and COVID-19 falls within those recommendations:


The best practices state that a disease name should consist of generic descriptive terms, based on the symptoms that the disease causes (e.g. respiratory disease, neurologic syndrome, watery diarrhoea) and more specific descriptive terms when robust information is available on how the disease manifests, who it affects, its severity or seasonality (e.g. progressive, juvenile, severe, winter). If the pathogen that causes the disease is known, it should be part of the disease name (e.g. coronavirus, influenza virus, salmonella).

So it is COVID-19. End of story.

Its already named sars-cov-2. (SARS-CoV-2 if you want to follow convention).

Trump Virus is the nickname though, lets make that official.
