World Health Organization Goes Full Woke on Naming Variants

The World Health Organization does not want you to call the coronavirus the Wuhan virus or the Chinese virus.

Instead, they have come up with a politically correct system for naming COVID and it’s variants:

Coronavirus variants are to be named after letters of the Greek alphabet instead of their place of first discovery, the World Health Organization has announced, in a move to avoid stigma.

The WHO has named four variants of concern, known to the public as the UK/Kent (B.1.1.7), South Africa (B.1.351), Brazil (P.1) and India (B.1.617.2) variants. They will now be given the letters Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta respectively, to reflect their order of detection, with any new variants following the pattern down the Greek alphabet.

The decision to go for this naming system came after months of deliberations with experts considering a range of other possibilities such as Greek Gods, according to bacteriologist Mark Pallen who was involved in the talks.

The Guardian

“While they have their advantages, these scientific names can be difficult to say and recall and are prone to misreporting … As a result, people often resort to calling variants by the places where they are detected, which is stigmatising and discriminatory. To avoid this and to simplify public communications, [the] WHO encourages national authorities, media outlets and others to adopt these new labels.” the W.H.O.

Isn’t it wonderful having unelected international groups like the W.H.O. telling you what to do?

The Spanish flu was a virus named over a hundred years ago. Places or origin were always used as the means to label and identify contagious pathogens. This practice also helped people know where the bug came from so they could avoid that area until the pandemic was over.

Now, like something out of 1984, people will no longer be told the “ground zero” location of a virus.

All for the sake of wokeness.
