The World Health Organization has given the official name to coronavirus. The task was difficult, because by the rules it was impossible to allow it to indicate animals, a person or a group of people, geographical names. 

As informs RIA News, WHO experts chose the name COVID-2019, which literally means CO - coronavirus, VI - virus and D - disease. It is easy to pronounce and is tied to the disease itself.

According to the latest data in China, 910 people died from deadly pneumonia caused by the virus, 3996 recovered. More than 42 thousand people were infected.
