Naming Corona Variants after the Greek Alphabet

Dr. Flavio Toxvaerd was interviewed for National Danish Radio’s Orientation programme about the stigma of naming COVID-19 variants after specific countries. The World Health Organization has said it is not acceptable to refer to corona variants as "The Indian Variant", because it stigmatises individual countries. Dr. Toxvaerd is asked how difficult it will be to get us to name corona variants after the Greek alphabet. Listen to the interview on the DR website. Interview starts at 36:37 and is in Danish.
