Definitions and meaning of cover
From Middle Englishcoveren, borrowed from Old Frenchcovrir, cueuvrir (modern Frenchcouvrir), from Late Latincoperire, from Latincooperiō(“I cover completely”), from co-(intensive prefix) + operiō(“I close, cover”). Displaced native Middle Englishthecchen and bethecchen(“to cover”) (from Old Englishþeccan, beþeccan(“to cover”)), Middle Englishhelen, (over)helen, (for)helen(“to cover, conceal”) (from Old Englishhelan(“to conceal, cover, hide”)), Middle Englishwrien, (be)wreon(“to cover”) (from Old English(be)wrēon(“to cover”)), Middle Englishhodren, hothren(“to cover up”) (from Low Germanhudren(“to cover up”)).
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the original sense of the verb and noun cover was “hide from view” as in its cognate covert. Except in the limited sense of “cover again,” the word recover is unrelated and is cognate with recuperate. Cognate with Spanishcubrir(“to cover”).
