btw have you noticed carnivorous is a synonym of coronavirus?
I already knew corona, the origin of virus is harder to track. Seems to have been a combination of sticky, foul smelling, bad tasting, slimy and poisonous. So basicily disgusting goo which could make you ill ;) The word viscous seems to have an atleast partially shared path, ooze as well actually
dutch vies and german fies, seem to have a relation (the furthedt back I could track virus was "vis", both meaning disgusting, dirty, foul, gross etc though their origins are listed as unclear.
Easier for a Europan though, I suppose.
