WUHAN PULMONARY DISEASE

So after a long delay, and with due pomp and gravitas, the World Health Organization announced a name for the Wuhan disease: "Novel Corona". Novel, as in 'new'. Yeah, guys? Everyone is calling it something else. The English-speaking world says 'Wuhan Corona Virus', the Chinese-tongued world calls it 武漢肺炎 ('mou hon fei yim'; "Wuhan pneumonia").

What part of the world do you-all live in?

Oh, yeah..... to quote from one of the people at WHO: "The main reason for this declaration is not what is happening in China but what is happening in other countries."

Dead people in China? NOT really important, internationally.
Dead people elsewhere? An emergency according to WHO.


Maybe people outside of China don't die very often.
