BREAKING: Covid variant that combines omicron and delta discovered in Cyprus

By 01/09/2022 11:08 AMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

A COVID-19 strain that combines the delta and omicron variant was discovered by a researcher in Cyprus.

On Friday, Leondios Kostrikis, professor of biological sciences at the University of Cyprus named the new COVID-19 variant as “deltacron,” because of its omicron-like genetic signatures within the delta genomes.

According to reports, Kostriki and his team have found 25 cases of the virus but they could not yet ascertain if there are more cases of the strain or what impacts it could have.

“We will see in the future if this strain is more pathological or more contagious or if it will prevail” against the two dominant strains, delta, and omicron, Kostrikis said.

The detection of deltacron is another headache for global health officials since the earlier COVID-10 strain omicron continues to wreak havoc around the world.

In the US alone, the latest health data showed that a seven-day average of more than 600,000 new cases are tallied daily.
