The current coronavirus outbreak has taken its toll on us. The evening news has been talking non-stop about the death tolls, the latest border controls in various countries, the infections, the unlucky cruise ships, and many different opinions offered by many experts. We are perplexed, we are in pain, and we are in a crisis.
Panic definitely won’t help. Knowing more about the virus might help calm us down. Over the past weeks, I have learned quite a number of interesting facts about the novel coronavirus. The word “coronavirus” is one of them. This epidemic seems to offer me a chance to learn some new words which I would not even think about learning. Perhaps, I can do the same thing, offering students who are learning Chinese a chance to learn some new words related to this epidemic.
Below is a list of must known words in Chinese, all related to the current epidemic.
I hope you have enjoyed learning these news words in Chinese. The more we know, the better we feel, coronavirus or not.
Also, I released two new videos recently, teaching beginner students how to read and write numbers in Chinese. Check them out here.
Stay safe, remain healthy, and keep learning.
