We say that a sequence $(\mathcal X_n)$ of families of subsets of a topological space $X$ is a $\sigma$-disjoint cover of $X$ if every family $\mathcal X_n$ consists of mutually disjoint sets and $\bigcup\limits_n\bigcup\mathcal X_n=X$.

Let us say that a space $X$ is weakly Lindelof, if every open cover of $X$ admits a $\sigma$-disjoint subcover. Clearly, every Lindelof space is weakly Lindelof.

**Question 1.** Is there any well-known in the literature name for the class of "weakly Lindelof" spaces?

The following question concerns weaker property than "weak Lindeloffness".

**Question 2.** Does there exist a $\sigma$-disjoint cover of a Banach space $X$ by open balls of diameters $\le 1$?

weakly Lindelofis already taken: any open cover of X contains a countable cover of a dense subset of X. $\endgroup$
