It’s Time to Unleash a New Greek Letter

With multiple reports of reinfection of people who were infected with older Omicron variants now being reinfected with the newer Omicron subvariants, we really need to unleash a new Greek letter (depending on the immunology, perhaps more than one. MOAR LETTERZ!). As long as we call these antigenically different subvariants ‘Omicron’, lots of people who were infected over the late fall or early winter will believe–incorrectly–that they’re protected from the newer Omicron variants.

Of course, that would require admitting that The Pandemic Is Over is not true, so we’ll just let infections–and long COVID–keep going and going…
