World Health Organization announces new simplified names for COVID-19 variants

The World Health Organization has announced a new naming system based on the Greek alphabet for key COVID-19 variants. While these new names will not replace existing scientific names, the new system is aimed to make the names easier to say and remember, as well as prevent stigma associated with calling variants by a location name.
