Another New Name: SARS-CoV-2

As if two was not enough, there is now a third.

Don't you love it when terminology changes! 

The coronavirus as it was first known was given the official title of COVID-19 by the World Health Organization (WHO). I would have just typed WHO, but someone might confuse it with the band The WHO.

Then today I read a new name, SARS-CoV-2. Same disease -- different name. I'm only sharing it here now so that in the future, you can follow "the bouncing ball" for what has kept us home for 2.5 months. 

Shall we end up with another name -- a few months hence? Would you like a fourth?
