A person last week expressed ethical displeasure with naming C19 a more geographically appropriate title, such as Wuhan Flu or Chinese COVID. This person’s displeasure centered on how dehumanizing this is and how it takes advantage of Chinese citizens to make ourselves feel better.

Remember this the next time you’re slipping on your Nike crosstrainers or buying a 98 cent replacement USB cable for your Android (free shipping, ships from China) because taking advantage of cheap Chinese labor isn’t dehumanizing and should make us all feel good providing much needed employment to keep our consumer products inexpensive.
