Initial reports of Covid-19 called it the Wuhan or Chinese virus.
The someones who worry about such things decided this was racist and the name changed.
For weeks we’ve being hearing about the UK strain but the someones who worry don’t appear to be worrying about afixing that strain to that place.
If it’s offensive to name a virus after one location isn’t it offensive to name it after another?
And if it’s not isn’t it condescending, patronising and indeed racist to deem some places in need of linguistic protection that is not needed for others?
