With almost 1.6 Lakh Covid Cases, 327 Deaths in last 24 Hrs contributed from both covid 19 variant of Delta and omicron variant it’s not over yet with possible rumors of new stronger variants popping out all over the world probably scaring people all over the news.  

A confirmed novel version of the delta and omicron virus was discovered in Cyprus, according to Leondios Kostrikis (biological science professor at the University of Cyprus and head of the laboratory of biotechnology and molecular virology).

“There are currently omicron and delta co-infections,” Kostrikis said in an interview with Sigma TV on Friday, “and we found this strain that is the combination of these two.” This new variant was dubbed “Deltacron” after the discovery of an omicron-like genetic signature within the delta genome. So far, 25 such cases have been identified, and statistical analysis shows that the relative frequency of the combined infection is higher among patients hospitalized due to covid-19.

GISAID, a worldwide database that records viral alterations, received the sequences of the 25 Deltacron cases.

However, in his judgment, the potent and extremely infectious omicron version will eventually replace this variety.
