Shakespeare, among the world's famous people, had said, "What is kept in the name." But the name has great importance. The names of storms and deadly diseases that bring devastation to the earth are also given. The world is in awe at this time.
More than 1100 people have officially become victims of this disease, while thousands of people are infected and in the world's second-largest economy, a slowdown has come due to this disease. You are thinking right, we are talking about novel coronavirus, which will be written as COVID-19 (COVID) and NCOV-19 in short. Certainly the question in your mind will be why and how a disease is given a name.
Earlier, the same disease was known by different names in the world after the formation of the United Nations, due to which many times there was confusion. This problem was diagnosed by the World Health Organization (WHO). It is now the responsibility of the WHO to give a name to a new disease so that all research institutes and hospitals get a standard. It also helps a lot in treatment.
