    Rest assured that the truth will come up slow but steady. This is a Kung Flu.

    People are very politically correct these days and get offended by anything. It is a virus that originated in China, hence the Chinese flu.

    Because it is not a flu, it is a coronavirus.

    It originated in China so it is called the China flu. So call it the China or Wuhan flu and you are being correct. Kung flu is funny but that is just a joke.

    It isn't the flu and it already had a name. People who call it that are ignorant politicians who want to manipulate and mobilize hatred. Those are the same politicians who refuse to promote masks but love to promote hate.

    Not a flu  for one.

    As for the other...I;'m fine with it if  we can call the Spanish Flu the AMERICAN flu because it first appeared in Kansas, not Spain.

    Wrong-- Because it's NOT a "flu" and it already has two names: coronavirus and Covid-19. By your logic, should we start calling HIV infections the "African flu?"

    As this is not the Politics section, the reason would be that COVID-19 is the generally agreed-upon designation, and most precise.
