Trump’s Dangerous Coronavirus Name Game is Part of a Long, Crazy History

For the second day in a row, President Trump opened a press conference today devoted to an outbreak that has now killed more than 200 Americans without saying the word “coronavirus.” Instead, he substituted his chosen name: “The Chinese Virus.”

Other Republicans are also racing to rebrand the virus that causes COVID-19. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has called it “Chinese Coronavirus,” while Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar is trying to make “Wuhan Virus” a thing. One White House official even allegedly referred to the global pandemic as “Kung-Flu.”

The World Health Organization intentionally avoids this, and advises against any possible nickname for a disease that calls up people, places, groups, or even professions, because those names can create a stigma. Even the Trump-appointed director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Robert Redfield, told the House in a hearing that using location-specific labels for the virus is “absolutely wrong and inappropriate.”

There is a long, inglorious history of naming diseases after disdained groups. In 1495, Russians called a syphilis outbreak the Polish Disease, the Polish called it the German Disease, and the French and Italians named it after each other. The 1918 flu pandemic that infected over a quarter of the world’s population is still referred to as “The Spanish Flu,” even though there is no consensus on where that outbreak originated. Spain just happened to have the most reliable reporting at the time, as other countries censored their press to boost morale during World War I. Because Spain reported the first illness-related death, it got stuck with the name.

Coronavirus is Bringing Long-Sought Social Safety Net Policies Into Reach

Progressive goals that long seemed like pipe dreams suddenly don’t look so far-fetched as the novel coronavirus ravages the economy.

Progressives have long fought for universal paid sick and family leave. Expanded unemployment insurance has been a top priority as well. And liberals have stewed over corporations buying back their own stock after getting government help. More recently, universal basic income — direct cash payments to all Americans — has become popular in some liberal circles.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), who ran for president last year, has advocated for many of these provisions. Last week, in response to the economic destruction wrought by the pandemic, he and Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) introduced legislation to give direct cash payments to Americans. Republicans are suddenly on board with — or at least open to — some of them.

We talked with him on Wednesday about how the coronavirus has changed politics, and parallels he sees with how America responded to the Great Depression.
