I thought I was joking when I said "The Omega variant" had a terribly apocalyptic sound to it. Not there yet but getting closer with every new name. The Omicron Variant does sound awfully like a science fiction novel of the end of the world. Why can't they give them less doom-laden names? If the bookies are taking bets on when this all ends I’d like a small wager on April 2057 just in time for my hundredth birthday.

I note that they're skipping around with the Greek letters.

They have just skipped over two and for pretty obvious reasons. Nu sounds too much like new and as for Xi - it would be seen as a deliberate insult to China. So just nine variants to go to the end of the world.
