The World Health Organization publishes a list of Variants of Concern (VoC), which is currently WHO's most serious classification of SARS-Cov-2 variants. On November 26, 2021, WHO added Omicron to this classification, bringing the total number of VoCs to 5.
Will WHO add another SARS-CoV-2 variant to their Variants of Concern in 2022?
This question will resolve positively if anytime between December 24, 2021 to January 1, 2023, the World Health Organization adds a new SARS-CoV-2 variant to their list of Variants of Concern. This may include a reclassification of any variant or descendent of a variant currently known in December 24, 2021 as a Variant of Interest or Variant Under Monitoring. Classifications by other sources or organizations such as the US CDC or ECDC are irrelevant to the resolution of this question.
