How far down the NATO phonetic alphabet will TPTB get with this 'variant' bollocks?

It would appear that the cunts that poke their oversized noises (not a Jew reference) into our lives have decided in their wisdom, to stop naming variants after countries, because that would be racist (apparently). Now the variants appear to be named on the basis of the NATO phonetic alphabet. We are currently on Delta, so how far down the alphabet do the esteemed contributors on here think we will get? Or will the whole alphabet be exhausted by this time next year (or sooner)?

Answers on a postcard please.

I got the India bit all right. The rest made my alcohol infused brain spin even more than usual on a school night.

Google clearly paid well over the odds for YouTube, as every single video you view is accompanied by two adverts in a desperate bid to maximise ad revenue. I wonder if the super-smart tech oligarchs are even close to breaking even on that particular venture.

I get your drift, but if you are asking. Do the owners of the 'largest video steaming service in the whole world' get fair value?

Well....xD

They aren’t using NATO phonetic alphabet, they are using the classical Greek alphabet: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon…

Over time it may subdivide in a tree structure like flu (e.g. H1N1), so a particular variant might be Gamma3Rho9. Or they’ll just get bored and lump them all in as “common cold”, like we do with the other 4.

That's what I was going to say, seemed like the Greek alphabet.
