    How about we just call this current pandemic we're going through the Chinese Virus...it makes as much sense as about a century ago when the pandemic was labeled the Spanish Flu and not the H1N1 Pandemic.


    Well, the H1N1 Pandemic did not originate in Spain.

    It is believed that it could originate from Kansas, or from China. 

    In Europe, the first cases where in France.

    It was labelled spanish flu because at the time Spain was not at war and did not suffer wartime censorship, so the spanish newspapers where the only ones reporting about the pandemic and it´s effects. That lead to believe that it started in Spain, and thus became known as the spanish flu.
