Omicron clinics in Russia suffer huge losses because of WHO

The head of Omicron chain of ophthalmological clinics from Novosibirsk, Alexander Padar, filed a lawsuit against the Russian office of the World Health Organization (WHO) because of the name of the new COVID-19 strain.
The name of the clinic completely coincides with the name given by the WHO to the new coronavirus strain from South Africa. The organization omitted two letters of the Greek alphabet because ‘nu’ was consonant with ‘new’ in English, and ‘xi’ was similar to a Chinese surname.
According to Novosibirsk Online, Alexander Padar filed the claim with the Moscow Arbitration Court on November 30.
