Has Anyone Been Confused With The New Terms?

Hello Everyone

Has anyone here been confused with the new terms when talking about the Coronavirus? It took me some time to understand what 'furlough' and 'r' mean. It must very awkward if you have memory problems and you're trying to understand what's happening.

Somewhere on the site @Palerider wrote about the difference in the use between the terms coronavirus and covid 19.
It seems wrong to me that talking point members are much better at explaining things than paid professional media reporting agencies.

I think this is because we are used to explaining things to our PWDs and again this is what makes us special.

I was on furlough back to work on Tuesday but worried about mum as not seen her since March and leaving dad on his own while I go back to work again

Coronavirus is the virus itself and the covid19(which stands for Corona Virus Disease 2019) is a disease caused by the virus.
