Posted on 03/18/2020 3:50:53 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
There has been controversy recently about what to call the virus that has unleashed a worldwide pandemic. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) prefers novel coronavirus. Others have referred to it as the Wuhan virus, after its place of origin, as is common in naming diseases.
The Epoch Times suggests a more accurate name is the CCP virus, and calls upon others to join us in adopting this name.
The name holds the CCP accountable for its wanton disregard of human life and consequent spawning of a pandemic that has put untold numbers in countries around the world at risk, while creating widespread fear and devastating the economies of nations trying to cope with this disease.
After all, CCP officials knew in early December that the virus had appeared in Wuhan, but they sat on the information for six weeks. They arrested those who tried to warn of the danger, accusing them of spreading rumors, and employed the regimes rigorous censorship to prevent media coverage and to delete any mentions of it from social media.
What might have been contained was allowed silently to spread, showing up in all of China. Individuals who might have protected themselves became victims, in numbers far greater than the CCP has admitted. By late January, there were reports that all of the crematoria in Wuhan were operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week to deal with the crush of dead bodies.

The Chinese Communist Party Wuhan Biochemical Lab Flu
“Virus-hit Wuhan has two laboratories linked to Chinese bio-warfare program”
What a co-inkydink!
You forgot the Bat part.
Wait until: Xis ChiCom Wuhan Pneumonia Coronavirus aka the Red Death/Mass People Killing Virus gets a foot hold in our homeless/druggie/illegal communities in our West and East coast metro areas, before naming it.
I like the Wu Flu.
The PLA Virus.
Chinese Manufactured Flu. It’s true whether it originated in their open markets or in their bio-labs. What’s also true is they delayed letting the world know, and there is a good possibility they destroyed the evidence (to include some individuals) of when it actually started.
Most Americans have no idea what “CCP” means; also the abbreviation can be turned into something else too easily.
I’d be for “commievirus” though.
CCP virus will never catch on.
It Is WUHAN virus.
How about the CYA Virus?
Or maybe the NoFault Virus.
Or the Sum Tin Wong Virus
The Chinese Communist Party Wuhan BIOWARFARE Flu
Yellow Peril works too..
Its easily confused with CCCP for those who remember the Cold War.
There is a pharmaceutical company in Wuhan where one of the investors is a certain Schwartz Gyorgy.
I’m sure the virus gives a crap what you call it.
Just so long as people realize the Epoch Times is a propaganda arm of Falun Gong so everything printed there is heavily anti CCP (you would say with reason from Falun Gong’s standpoint).
