WHO renames UK and other Covid-19 variants with Greek letters

The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced a new naming system for Covid-19 variants.

From now on the WHO will use Greek letters to refer to variants that had been first detected in the UK, South Africa and India. 

The UK variant is labelled as Alpha, the South African Beta and the Indian Delta – the WHO says the renaming is to simplify discussions and also help remove the stigma from the names.
