The Spanish are from Spain but are they their own race?
Otherwise Spanish Flu might be countryist but not racist.

I'd vote to call it "Visigothic Flu".

Visigoth - does that mean "I see dead people"?

One of the hardest hit neighborhoods in NYC is Corona, Queens, which is home to a large Hispanic population. So ironically, calling the disease the Coronavirus might also be racist.

Unless that Hispanic population is heavily Roman, I think not.
