Be wary of nomenclatures for COVID-19
It is interesting to note that the Spanish Flu of 1918 did not originate in Spain. The person who created this nomenclature just didn’t like the Spanish.
Nomenclatures such as this are racist and create a great deal of hurt due to the assignment of blame.
Referring to COVID-19 by its country of genesis assigns blame to ALL Chinese, and in some instances, intentionally or unintentionally, ALL Asians.
This nomenclature is used as the means to justify bullying and discrimination in playgrounds, streets, shopping centres and restaurants.
Words are powerful weapons.
