W.H.O. Renames Covid Variants

Covid variants have been renamed by the World Health Organisation, which says naming them after the location where they are discovered can be stigmatising and discriminatory.

They've chosen Greek letters, and are asking governments and the media to use the new names.
The so-called Kent version has been called Alpha, while the Indian variant will now be known as Delta.
