Wash your hooves & PPE
An n95 or RZ mask is better than a surgical mask if you can get one. Better yet is at least a couple if you can, and put them on a rotation so you don't wear the same one until a couple days later. But don't hoard a whole bunch of them please. Also, a gas mask/full face respirator is better than either of those. I am using a soviet Russian GP-5 with a polish FP-5 ABEK/NBC styled filter and I have good confidence in it. It was $20 for the mask with stock filter. (don't use old gp-5 stock filters unless it's a life or death situation. There's asbestos in those filters.) The FP-5 filter was $35 for a filter that technically expired a few years ago. (Still works very very well for this situation.) These prices are inflated right now- you can usually get this stuff cheaper, but still, pretty affordable if you scour the internet for them. Stay safe everypony.

@YinglongFujun I just want to say how well done this is and how fantastic it is. It's an extremely cute drawing and I love the spray from Coco's sneeze. This drawing it getting a lot of praise on other communities by the way! Well done!

It's originally made for a Hong Kong and Taiwanese audience on Facebook (see source). I only uploaded them on elsewhere, including here, myself because they started to be shared outside the circle, and someone else uploaded a smaller version on here.

All in all, feel free to debate the naming, but please don't be distracted from the practical advice.

Bit of a slippery slope.

Yep, I realised as much afterwards. Some people in China would overreact to this pseudo-term, though, and you don't want it when the bigots who happen to be born in China feel insulted.
I said these because heated discussion isn't what we need now, and sometimes you cannot reason with offended people, Chinese or not.

The accusation made by some Chinese and Iranian government officials is that COVID-19 is an American product, an engineered bio-weapon. I've seen one article claim that Israel made it, and there's some trying to speculate the Chinese government is responsible.

*Sigh* It's awfully ineffective for a bio-weapon. Single-digit mortality rates, only a few days of pre-symptomatic spread at most, and a measly 2.5 R 0? What kind of incompetent amateur maniacal supervillains do they take the US/Israel/China/fill-in-the-blank to be, anyway?

Admittedly, that's really pretty much par for the course for pretty much every bio-weapon anyone's so far tried to deploy. Bio-weapons just aren't really as practical as most people seem to think.

Only for a person that has a prerequisite for being that incredibly stupid and racist. Bit of a slippery slope. Everyone knows where it came from; what you call it won't matter.

Well… the amount of stupid and racist people is not small; just check Twitter or 4chan. Or hate crime cases where even non-Chinese Asian people are injured.

While I can agree to an extent that everyone knows where it came from, I think the name does matter, because not everyone reacts the same to the fact that it first appeared in Wuhan. Some might think (and not search for evidence about that thought) it comes from bat soup or whatever batshit stereotypical "food" they believe, and reinforce the stereotype. Some may believe in conspiracy theories such as saying that the Chinese CDC invented the virus and lost it. Some may not even know what a Wuhan is, and treat all their Asian neighbors with disgust without thinking. Human stupidity has no end, and there's a reason why WHO even issued a guideline for naming diseases.

…and make them believe that all Chinese people are infected, leading to an unfound Chiniphobia.

It makes me wonder how americans would react to the 1918 flu epidemic being called the American Flu, since that's where it originated before spreading out to kill millions.

Sure, why not. America is a location. "American" is anything related to that location, people who live there, animals that live there, items that primarily come from there, etc. That's what scientists and biologists use to refer to animals in regions and you'll hear it in documentaries. It's just how the English language functions.

At least here in the states, Asian-Americans call their restaurants "Chinese", put in the name and the menu, even though there is actually very poor resemblance to literal Chinese cuisine. Fortune cookies and Chop Suey have no basis in China, but you'll find them in thousands of "Chinese" restaurants. Same with Hispanic-Americans and "Mexican" food.

All this, and vast majority of people don't mind calling Native Americans "Indians". And Native Americans don't care.

Too many people get into theory-land about being offended for others and how it would be felt to those others in language semantics. But when offense is intended, it will be direct and purposeful.
