The disease that has been previously called coronavirus will now be renamed to Covid-19, the World Health Organization Confirmed.

The decision was made in n effort to stop stigmatizing any geographical location or group of people.

“Having a name matters, to prevent the use of other names that can be inaccurate or stigmatizing. It also gives us a standard format to use for any future coronavirus outbreak,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanon Ghebreyesus said in a press conference in Switzerland.

Currently, Covid-19 has already killed 1,350 people and infected more than 4,500 across the world.
