SARS-CoV-2 is the name of the virus (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome - Corona Virus - 2).

COVID-19 (COrona VIrus Disease 2019) is the name of the disease you get from the virus.

"Coronavirus" can mean a few different diseases. We have had a type of coronavirus in the USA before, called "SARS." Now, this coronavirus is also a type of SARS. This type of coronavirus is called COVID-19, and COVID-19 causes SARS-COV-2. Like how HIV causes AIDS, COVID-19 causes SARS-COV-2. I am not an expert, so if an expert sees this and some of my information is incorrect, I'm sorry, and please tell me. Hopefully that helped!

Currently we don't know if corona is really from Wuhan because before in America there were some laboratories handling with corona. maybe someone went to do something at Wuhan. we don't know. some people think it is to do with USA losing the military games held in Wuhan. THIS IS ALL A MYSTERY WE DONT KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE OR NOT. BEWARE STAY HOME BE SAFE :)
