Why doesn't the Wuhan virus get a Greek Letter?

Now that the focus has changed to the “variants” which were all given Greek letters so as not to stigmatise the countries they originated from, what has become of the Wuhan/China virus?

Seems to me that the whole variant thing was created to shift the focus from China, and to then say that it is hurtful to name a country in relation to the origin of the virus.

In the official list of Greek letters to COVID strains, there is one glaring omission. I’ll let you figure out which one is missing.

So the White strain is “Alpha”, hmmm
White supremacy detected!

We need to be more worried about the Omega strain.
