    The original virus, before mutations, began in Wuhan China. That's why we call it the Chinese virus. Now there are several vatiants with designations like UK, South African, Brazilian etc.

    Viruses must have originated at wherever it was first identified by virologists, because the virus does not travel across the globe. So the place of identification is the place of origin.

    COVID-19 is a virus called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and appears to have originated in bats and was spread to humans by zoonotic transfer.  Its exact evolutionary history, the identity and provenance of its most recent ancestors, and the place, time, and mechanism of transmission of the first human infection, remain unknown.

    It originated in China. From their Wuhan virus lab.

    The virus has name variations because it morphs as it is spreads in different areas.
