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.
