Did you know there's a place in California called Corona?

Why was coronavirus named after there? That wasn't where it started, was it?

Not unless you think 'flushing' was named after Flushing in NYC.
[@536229,BijouPleasurette] well I was close. A Mancunion!. I worked with a team from the university years ago, I enjoyed my time there. Only got beaten up a few times!

So City or United?

[@325375,Majorlatency] I don't really give a fig about football but United if I have to choose (only because my bf supports them). Lol :)
[@536229,BijouPleasurette] Well he's got taste.. After all he has you!

Q[@3749,smiler2012] in Spain as well ... not surprising it means crown in Spanish

[@536229,BijouPleasurette] coronation is from French , Latin languages are similar

[@687695,Julien] Actually, I guessed "corona" was a Latin word meaning "crown".
Julien · 31-35, M
[@536229,BijouPleasurette] so , not just a pretty hat rack 😂

I think it's from drinking corona beer.

I did know that, yes. All from the same meaning of "corona" ("crown" in Latin and Spanish).
