FALSE: CORONA is actually an anagram of the word RACOON, which is found in the apocalyptic movie Residence of Evil. The logo of the secret elite organization Umbrella Corporation, which seeks to exterminate humanity, resembles the logo of a Chinese biotechnology company.

Moreover, there is no evidence that the Chinese company RLSW has anything to do with the spread of the new coronavirus.
