GIVEN I have entered a popular misspelled word (for example: caronavirus)

Hi,

 

I think you need to handle this via custom javascript, where you can add some mapping of the misspelled words with the correct works and if search term matches with the list of misspelled words you can show the correct word. 

 

The list can be updated eventually on new terms which you figure out by user search terms.

As per the W3 spec, you can use the spellcheck attribute on HTML input fields (such as <input> and <textarea>) to toggle browser's built-in spell checker on or off. It has the following values:

  • spellcheck="true" or spellcheck — enables spell checker;
<input type="text" spellcheck="true" />
<textarea spellcheck="true"></textarea>
