    So we can't call the bat flu "Wuhan flu" but

    We can call the variants "Brazil" or "British"?
    Going against a fairly longstanding protocol of naming diseases/outbreaks after the location of patient zero or the outbreak origin such as "Lyme, Pennsylvania; Hantan, South Korea; the Spanish flu etc.
    The WHO or some other powers decided that calling the bat flu "Wuhan disease" was racist so we have to call it Covid-19 yet the variants are named after the regions/countries they appear in?
    Colour me confused.
    what's orange and looks good on hippies?
    fire

    rails are for trains
    If I had a dollar for every time capitalism was blamed for problems caused by the government I'd be a rich fat film maker in a baseball hat.

    I once had a sales manager that would set tasks for the sales force at trade shows. One SIA Vegas we had to use the phrase "Cleveland Steamer" in every presentation to dealers. Thanks for the memory.

    Mississippi has always had a bad rap.

    If a couple in Mississippi gets a divorce, are they still brother and sister?

    The WHO knows it isn't smart to piss off Xi. The British or Brazil? WHO gives a fuck?

    I got a bogus speeding ticket in Coxsackie once. They have a virus named after them. So I don't offend them, I refer to the town as Cocksuckie now.

    If chiropteran activists like Bruce Wayne have their way, people who say "bat flu" will be cancelled too

    OP is going to be disappointed when he finds out the Spanish flu probably should have been the Haskell County flu.
