“Corona ka(コロナ禍)” means situation of COVID-19. this is a formal word.
“Corona(コロナ)” means coronaviruses, in Japan we call it “Corona” not COVID-19.
“Ka(禍)” means disaster. This is a too difficult word, so at first, most of Japanese couldn’t read and understand it.
But it became a common word, because of the COVID-19.
If you check the news site in Japan, you can find this word easily.
