Coronageddon (coronavirus + Armageddon)

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was viewed as an Armageddon by many, resulting in the portmanteau term “Coronageddon” (coronavirus + Armageddon).
“Coronageddon” was posted on Twitter by Matt on January 24, 2020, and on Twitter by pat on January 28, 2020.
“‘Coronageddon’ Arrives This Weekend With Six Mile Closure Of The 91 Freeway” had been posted on LAist (Los Angeles, CA) on February 19, 2016, but this referred to traffic at Corona, California.
“Coronapocalypse”  (coronavirus + apocalypse) is a similar term.
Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.
Wikipedia: Armageddon
According to the Book of Revelation in the New Testament of the Christian Bible, Armageddon (/ˌɑːrməˈɡɛdən/, from Ancient Greek: Ἁρμαγεδών Harmagedōn, Late Latin: Armagedōn, from Hebrew: הר מגידו Har Megiddo) is the prophesied location of a gathering of armies for a battle during the end times, variously interpreted as either a literal or a symbolic location. The term is also used in a generic sense to refer to any end of the world scenario. In Islamic theology, the Armageddon is also mentioned in Hadith as the Greatest Armageddon or Al-Malhama Al-Kubra (the great battle).

Coronageddon: Can A “Minsky Moment” Be Avoided?

Sun, 03/01/2020 - 18:05
Authored by Mike Whitney via The Unz Review,
There’s a chance that the coronavirus will be contained in the United States and that fewer people will be infected than in China or Iran. But there’s also a possibility that the highly-contagious virus will spread and that there will be sporadic outbreaks across the country.
If this latter scenario takes place, then the ructions in the stock market will intensify making it impossible to form a bottom or spark a relief rally.
