1- Note the correct spelling of "frenzy".

2- You can say "has gone into a frenzy", or even better "is in a frenzy".

3- Use "novel coronavirus" or "COVID-19".

Christine Christiea) "The world is going into a frenzy because of the (new) coronavírus."

Novel is not a good word in this context. Use it in sentences like this: That's a novel idea! (No one has thought of that before.)


Coronavirus is a compound.
