Terminology for Pedants

Terminology for pedants: “coronavirus” is a category of many viruses, not just this one. This virus is “SARS-CoV-2”. The disease it causes in humans is “COVID-19”. Before “SARS-CoV-2” was standardized, the virus was provisionally named “2019 novel coronavirus” or “2019-nCov”. — Marco Arment (@marcoarment) March 13, 2020
