    Hopefully.... it won't change to a pandemic. Though on a different topic, I wonder how they come up with the different virus names. It feels like a bunch of letters and numbers put together.

    As scientific names do, it is either a sequential code or initials of something. Probably both.

    I hope the communist party brings the hammer down on that pig farm instead of the investigators and doctors this time.

    Yeah, someone on a Discord server helped explain to me how they got for the Coronavirus and the flu (H1N1). So, it's nice to know to be honest.

    Hopefully, we really don't need another pandemic in our hands.

    Viruses are named based on their genetic structure to facilitate the development of diagnostic tests, vaccines and medicines. Virologists and the wider scientific community do this work, so viruses are named by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV).


    Well for instance, SARS is an abbreviation of
    Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.

    covid-19 is a breakup of parts.
    COrona-the main name
    VI-virus
    D-disease
    19-the year is was first noted

    Corona itself means "crown" in latin, no idea why they went with that.

    I always assumed 19 meant it was 19th strain of the virus discovered, since I remembered hearing that this isn't the first iteration of it.

    Because that's how the virologists that first discovery the corona strain in '68 thought that the virions looked liked a solar corona.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Taxonomist also know their job is horrific boring so they pull an Araki an try to put cultural references on the names or go completely bizarre with latin.

    It's like the second major one, and maybe the sixth or seventh variant overall. Not where the 19 comes from. It is 100% from the year.

    There are dozens of variations of just the one thats a big deal right now. Some with boosted ability to spread, while others strengthened the ability to invade cells. The real worry is that a nastier mutation occurs, as happened with Spanish flu in 1918.

    The first time I saw it I kept reading it as COR-vid, which made me think they were naming it after the raven of death or something. lol

    Yeah, that makes sense.

    Interesting. Seems the names explains more on what the disease does.

    covid-19 is a breakup of parts.
    COrona-the main name
    VI-virus
    D-disease
    19-the year is was first noted

    Corona itself means "crown" in latin, no idea why they went with that.
    Yeah, that makes so much sense lool

    I think the corona bit is because of how it looks like I believe.

    Thank you by the way for explaining to me! I like to learn and broaden my knowledge about things, so thank you!

    So i dunno if all the singaporeans here have left, but we're going to the polls in 2 days time to elect our parliament.
    Honestly i'm glad we can leave all this behind because the online discourse has been downright toxic. Feels like our current governing party (who admittedly does a good job) does too much mudslinging and then you have all the comments saying that they need to be kicked out of their seats etc. It's kind of sad and i feel like we're not able to really debate the direction we want out of our government, especially when these huge elections only come once in 5 years.
