I find it amusing that the article mentions (should there be a 
sufficient number of new strains that they run out of Greek letters), a 
possibility that a future strain might get named "The Andromeda Strain", 
which they mention was a book by Michael Crichton, and made into a 
movie. I don't think anybody is stupid enough to do that (the optics 
would be terrible), but ...

Spoiler for the 50-year old book/movie: The strain in that also affected 
blood clotting, but it was (hkhm) somewhat more aggressive than the 
current 'Rona.
