a name that is "non-stigmatizing"???   The actions of the virus are what brings the stigma, not the damn name.

HIV has the most clinical name possible, but its still carries the greatest stigma of any virus on planet earth.

yes, and because it's the virus that causes stigma, you don't want to name it the "Charleston Chills" or the "Berlin Plague" because your attaching stigma to names, places and things that don't deserve it. you'd think after trump's "China virus" bullshiat this would be obvious

Considering it caused multiple assaults against random asians in various countries because racists are racist and violent... kinda.

China has enough vile shiat going on to hate on china - and by that I mean the CCP - not the average jo citizen, nor random people of asian heritage because you can't tell the difference between chinese and laotian
