The request for this word was: "Name for the Coronavirus disease 2019 that caused the pandemic starting 2020."  [note]

More Information

This is a Terran thing, of course, so there's no native Klingon word for it. "Virus" is javtIm, so Maltz thought that qoro'na javtIm would be acceptable for "corona virus" in general. For the disease, he suggested qo'vID wa'maH Hut. Maltz said he wasn't familiar with Klingon virus-naming conventions, so he wasn't sure how Klingon scientists would handle SARS-CoV-2.
