It originates in China, so it is the China Virus using past conventions of naming. If you wanted to get more specific, it could be called the Wuhan Virus. 

 

Those are simple geographic descriptors. No worse than Ebola, West Nile, Middle East, Zika, etc.

 

The one that was really incorrectly names was the Spanish Flu of 1918, it did not originate in Spain but Spain was the first country to formally identify it. 

 

The controversy around the naming is that some people do not want to stigmatized any culture with "owning" a virus.

It is what it is.   I'm sure if it originated in the US it would be called the American Flu (or the Trump Flu by the media).

According to DemocRATS the term “Chinese Virus” is racist! Then again, everything is about race with those rats.

I really don't have an issue with the logic behind how/why it became called the Chinese/Wuhan virus. However, my question is was there an issue people found with just calling it coronavirus or COVID19 like we had done for months beforehand? Seemed everyone was doing fine with referring to it as that. What happened?
