Deltacron Variant Detected By Cyprus

Dr. Leondios Kostrikis, the head of the laboratory of biotechnology and molecular virology at the University of Cyprus reports 25 samples were collected in Cyprus where 14 were from the general population and 11 were hospitalized affected by the virus. 

He also states that it is to be seen in the future if this strain is more pathological or more contagious and if it will prevail over the delta and omicron covid variants. In his personal view, he states that this strain will be displaced by the highly transmissible and dangerous omicron variant of Covid-19.

Views Of Cyprus’s health Minister of Deltacron

The University of Cyprus, the Health Minister Michalis Hadjipandelas quoted that the new variant of covid- 19 Deltacron is nothing to worry about at this very moment as there is a high possibility that this new strain has not been found anywhere else around the world. These cases are reportedly sent to GISAID an international database that records and tracks developments in the coronavirus. 

There are chances of a new variant arising as the existence of Delta and Omicron and their trading of genes.
