New Covid Variant Is Discovered – It Mixes Omicron And Delta

It’s been just reported that there’s an expert in Cyprus who has discovered a new strain of the novel coronavirus that mixes the Delta and the Omicron variants. Check out the latest news coming from Bloomberg News.

What is Deltacron? 

CNBC notes that Leondios Kostrikis, professor of biological sciences at the University of Cyprus, called the strain “deltacron,” because of its omicron-like genetic signatures within the delta genomes, Bloomberg said.

It’s also important to note the fact that Kostrikis and his team have found 25 cases of the virus, according to the report.

It’s still too early to tell whether 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.”

This is what Kostrikis said in an interview with Sigma TV Friday. He believes omicron will also overtake deltacron.

It’s also important to note the fact that experts sent their findings this week to GISAID, an international database that tracks viruses, according to Bloomberg.

The deltacron variant comes as omicron continues its rapid spread across the globe, and this is causing a surge in Covid-19 cases.

Covid in the news 

The novel coronavirus continues to remain all over the news.

There’s an extraordinarily interesting interview that should be addressed here as well for all our readers, no matter how controversial it is.

You might be aware of the fact that the mRNA vaccine expert/inventor dr. Robert Malone went on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast to raise concerns over the covid 19 vaccines and also to touch a bunch of other interesting related issues. 

As the online publication the Daily Mail reports, YouTube has removed Joe Rogan’s interview with the scientist who helped invent mRNA vaccines. We suggest that you check out vital data about the interview in our previous article.
