"Coronavirus" and "Covid-19" tags should be aliased to each other.

I know the 19 in Covid-19 is because Coronavirus was a thing before 2019, but not as serious as it is now, but anyone referencing it in art is talking about the current pandemic. So it seems a little unnecessary to have two separate tags for the exact same thing.

Aliasing would only become a problem in the future if we cure Covid-19, then have a new pandemic with a Covid-21 or whatever year it resurges.

is it really the same thing? COVID is an acronym for COronaVIrus Disease which is more of an end result, not unlike how HIV causes AIDS but the two are seen as separate things.

the tl;dr is that carriers can have HIV without AIDS or Coronavirus without COVID-19

Fair enough, but this isn't some historical science site. It's images about pastel horses. I don't think there's any real harm in making them interchangeable if it helps people find/hide it more easily.

Maybe it would help if it had a different name like HIV and AIDS. Just think it sounds a little silly to say you can have Corona without actually having Corona.

you make a fair point regarding interchangeability for ease-of-use's sake.
plus, after rereading the OP, I feel that I have to point out that I must've misread aliased as implied (likely due to "each other" in the thread title throwing me off). that said, I don't think aliasing Covid-19 into Coronavirus should cause any trouble whatsoever

Well, your original point about one being an end result still stands, as right now Covid-19 implies Coronavirus, but not the other way around. So anyone using covid is going to have both tags, but anyone using corona is only going to have the one tag. Despite that, corona is the more populated tag anyway.
