Since its emergence in December 2019, the deadly coronavirus has been given a number of names. It was nicknamed the “Wuhan virus” when the disease was almost exclusive to the city, before being known as the novel coronavirus and its official name, COVID-19.

US president Donald Trump now has a new term for it you can add to your dictionary: “Caronavirus.”

On Wednesday, the president took to Twitter to pin media outlets for “doing everything possible to make the Caronavirus look as bad as possible, including panicking markets… USA [is] in great shape!”

Trump later held a news conference in the White House to address the coronavirus, and put vice president Mike Pence in charge of the US government’s response to COVID-19.

Trump also said the nation was “very, very ready” to fight the virus, but commented that “right now it’s not the right time” to impose travel restrictions on other countries, including those with large numbers of reported cases.

His “Caronavirus” misspelling caught the attention of readers, and even trended on Twitter.

Twitter users wondered if Trump would have been more concerned about the virus if it had been named “Corona virus” after the Mexican beer.

“In fairness, Caronavirus is a walk in the park compared to Coronavirus,” commented actor Rachel Dratch.

Low Ratings Fake News MSDNC (Comcast) & @CNN are doing everything possible to make the Caronavirus look as bad as possible, including panicking markets, if possible. Likewise their incompetent Do Nothing Democrat comrades are all talk, no action. USA in great shape! @CDCgov…..

Maybe if we tell Trump it’s called the Corona virus because it’s Mexican like the beer he’ll be more concerned with trying to prevent it from coming here.
