    Unless you’re a klan member or from Taiwan, the virus name is Covid-19 not the racist “Wuhan” variant. :p:p:p:p

    Certain members, (not you), take delight in using that nomenclature to refer to Covid-19.

    Strictly speaking, the virus name is SARS-CoV-2 and the disease you get from it is Covid-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019)

    in Taiwan in Chinese and in English it is called the Wuhan Virus or China Virus or Covid. Taiwan is not a member of the World Helpless Organization and nobody with any sense listens to their lies. When China blocked people in Wuhan from taking trains or flights or buses to other parts of China they let them take international flights to the rest of the world knowing people were spreading the virus. China will never apologize or accept responsibility for screwing the rest of the world. But China will play on the stupid sensibilities of anyone who dares ask a question about the Wuhan Virus by claiming you are all racists for asking. If you are in China though and ask you are jailed for "picking arguments and being a trouble maker"

    How can "Wuhan be racist?" It is the name of a place. Just like you have the Spanish flu or the Ebola Virus. Calling it the Wuhan virus is not racist even the Chinese call it that in China.
    Tarring people as klan members is just another woke virtual signaling mechanism to want to make people not to use the name of the place the virus came from. I guess CNN is part of the Klan then?

    All these articles refer to Wuhan. As a place. A place where at that moment was a virus outbreak. It does not name the virus the Wuhan virus.
