Coronavirus (COVID-19) words and terms explained

During the COVID-19 outbreak there are many words and terms being used regularly on news, radio, TV and online that we might never have seen, heard or used before. 

To help improve everyone’s understanding CDHN have compiled an A-Z glossary of COVID-19 words and terms with plain English explanations.

This glossary has been adapted (with permission) for a Northern Ireland context from National Adult Literacy Agency Coronavirus COVID-19 words and terms explained in plain English

As COVID-19 is a new and emerging situation CDHN will be updating our glossary as often as possible with relevant words and terms.    If there are any words and terms relating to COVID-19 that you would like to see included in the glossary, please email
