What’s In A Name

Paediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome, known as PIMS had been added to our lexicon. Another savage twist to the Covig-19 infection that is now infecting children.

Without belittling the effect of this awful pandemic could the scientific naming guys come with abbreviations that don’t link to well know drinks. I hear sales of Corona beer have crashed and now Pim(m)s is for the trash can. If my plea can be heard can they, for personal reasons avoid using any term using the abbreviation IPA. Thank you.
