Allen County Health Dept: No confirmed coronavirus cases in Ohio

The novel virus causing the expanding outbreak of respiratory illness centered in China has been officially named COVID-19 by the World Health Organization.

"Particular attention will be paid to understanding transmission of the virus, the severity of disease and the impact of ongoing response measures". WHO Director-General Tedros Adnom told more than 400 researchers attending the meeting, "99% of the cases in China have posed a serious threat not only to this country but to the rest of the world".

The disease that has caused more than a thousand deaths in China has a new name - Covid-19. From now on, the virus will be known as "COVID-19". The WHO referenced guidelines set in 2015 that ensure the name does not refer to a geographical location, an animal, an individual or group of people, while still being pronounceable and related to the disease. Identified in late December, novel coronavirus was initially linked to a wholesale animal and fish market in Wuhan, the largest city in central China. "It also gives us a standard format to use for any future coronavirus outbreaks", World Health Organization director-general Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a press conference.

"CO" stands for corona, "VI" for virus and the "D" for disease.

But Tandeser maintained that the main importance is to contain the epidemic and save lives. According to the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses, SARS-CoV-2 is a sister virus to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronaviruses. Though it was earlier called 2019nCoV, the virus was mostly referred to as the new coronavirus.
