Covid19 : Deltacron Infections that combine Delta and Omicron found in Cyprus
A strain of Covid19 that combines delta and omicron was found in Cyprus, according to Leondios Kostrikis, professor of biological sciences at the University of Cyprus and head of the Laboratory of Biotechnology and Molecular Virology.
Deltacron situations were found in 25 samples taken in Cyprus, of which 11 were from patients hospitalised with Covid and 14 from the general public, according to Cyprus Mail, a local English daily.
The deltacron variant comes as omicron continues its rapid spread across the globe, causing a surge in Covid-19 situations.
