Covid19 stands for CoronaVirus Disease of the year 2019. COVI for CoronaVirus and D for Disease and 19 is the year of the outbreak.

As per WHO organization, each virus has a disease two different names are given. For example, HIV is a virus that causes AIDS.

Well, here coronavirus is a virus and as per

coronavirus disease 


severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 

The Taxonomy department of WHO is responsible for naming more here

What is interesting is before releasing the names – they are not securing the domains. And, in future, they should be not releasing the name before securing its matching domains.

Both are very fresh registrations in dot com. In fact, not only dot com but it is at present registered in several other extensions.
