Viking Cruises has suspended operations until the 30th April

Quarantined 29 passengers on a river cruise Southeast Asia, including a positive for coronavirus

Virus seems on the verge of becoming an unpronounceable word cruises, although this finding is not certainly supported by scientific certainties since, as far as we know, case studies so far are based on a single certainty: what the Viking cruise company, at least at judging by his recent communications, this noun just can't write it, maybe not even say it and maybe not even to think it. Unthinkable, of course, to use words that can have some relevance to this word, such as contagion and less epidemic. Better to use the most precise and scientific term COVID-19, which in itself appears even more Aseptic.
