I have no issues with the gist of this entry, but in the first sentence "COVID-19" should not be used in apposition to "the name of the coronavirus", which is SARS-CoV-2. COVID-19 is the name of the disease, COrona VIrus Disease 2019.

To your first question, it is COVID or CoVID because this too is an acronym (https://www.abbreviations.com/term/2192794)
