Not new.Great, more new information, LOL
COVID-19Now I know that the virus is SARS-CoV-2, and the disease is COVAD-19, and corona is just what people unofficially call it.
"I", not "A", and it's not called "corona" but "Coronavirus" casually. People who just call it "corona" should be spanked.
Cat is accurate, it is shorthand for "domestic cat". You just have to pay attention to context.'Cat' is inaccurate.
The scientific name you mean, not official. And it's Felis, not Felus, "i", not "u". It should probably be Felis lybica domesticus in the same way dogs are a subspecies of wolf: Canis Lupus Familiaris.The official name for a house cat is felus catus, but nobody uses that in day to day conversation.
I wish people would call it SARS-CoV-2 because maybe then they'll realize that it is genetically related (so closely related it is a sister virus) to the "SARS" virus from some years back and that these sorts of diseases will just keep on happening until humanity gets stricter regulations on meat production/food production and stricter environmental regulations in certain areas.Either way, I don't think taxonomic names like SARS-CoV2 is going to stick.
