The new variant of Covid first isolated in South Africa has been named omicron by the WHO on Friday. SARS-CoV-2 variants are called after Greek alphabets, but for naming omicron, WHO avoided Xi.

Here’s why WHO names new Covid variant Omicron instead of Greek alphabet Xi. The World Health Organization named the first variant of Covid, identified in South Africa, Omican by the World Health Organization on Friday.

The new Covid variant was officially named Omicron by the World Health Organization on Friday. SARS-CoV-2 variants are named after the Greek alphabet, but for the new variant, WHO used Omicron instead.

Omicron is the new variant of Covid identified first in South Africa. It was named by the World Health Organization on Friday. SARS-CoV-2 variants usually have Greek alphabet names, but omicron is an altogether different approach.

Omicron is the new variant of Covid identified in South Africa, and it was named by the WHO Friday rather than using the Greek alphabet Xi. This is because previous Covid variants were named after Greek alphabets, but this one is named after the ominion.
