I think you’re missing my point.

Sars-cov-2 is the name of the actual virus.
“severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)” that is S-evere A-cute R-espriratoy S-yndrom CO-rona-V-irus #2

Covid-19 is the illness it produces.
“coronavirus disease (COVID-19)” that is “CO-rona-VI-rus D-isease 20-19”

You can resent it all you want but it’s a fact.
