I should also note that a LexisNexis search revealed that Asian news services were also calling it the Wuhan virus.

    As for European news...



    And that's just a few I pulled up that used "Wuhan virus" or "Wuhan coronavirus" in their titles. Many more contained those terms in the body of the story.

    I didn't even look to see how many called "Chinese virus" or "Chinese coronavirus"
    The COVID19 designation dates from Feb 11. All but two of those articles date from before Feb 11. Check your Trump Apologist Syndrome.

    Trump also refers to it as "Kung Flu," which one of Trump's top advisors assures us is "highly offensive."


    In March, when a reporter said she had heard about White House staffers using the term, Conway demanded the names of the staffers allegedly saying “kung flu.”

    “Of course it’s wrong,” Conway said at the time. “That’s highly offensive, so you should tell us all who it is.”

    Many of the stories I found that used "Wuhan virus" and "Wuhan coronavirus" in the bodies of the text but not the titled dated from well into April, which even you probably realize is well after mid February. And as I pointed out one of those that used it in the title did so in June, which in case you didn't know was just last month.

    But yeah, the frequency dropped sharply the moment that Trump started using the term and it instantly was declared politically incorrect by the ever self-righteous MSM.

    I pretty much stuck with English language newspapers so I don't know if any Danish news services were using the terms although I understand that China got upset over an image published in the Jyllands-Posten which showed the Chinese flag but replaced the yellow stars with depictions of the Chicom coronavirus.




    To their credit the paper has refused to kowtow and beg forgiveness

    I remember that, and yes. China made a lot of bluster to the danish government. And our prime minister kindly told China that in Denmark the government doesn't do censorship. They'd have to petition Jyllands-Posten, and if that newspaper wanted to retract the drawings it would. A similar thing happened during the bizarro Muhammed cartoon crisis (which was ridiculous), but there out of security concerns the paper retracted the drawings.

    Yeah, I'd like to see the actual quote since the last I heard of it was when a self-righteous PBS NewsHour correspondent, Yamiche Alcindor, kept asking at press conferences back in March whether it was true that someone in his Administration once referred to it as "Kung flu." Note that she had no evidence but wanted substantiation of a rumor. Has that now morphed into Trump himself supposedly saying it or did he later use the term?
