New COVID-19 variant detected in Cyprus with no need to worry yet, says minister

 

-- 

 A hybrid of the Delta and Omicron Covid-19 variants has reportedly been discovered in Cyprus, and 25 cases of the virus have already been recorded. Critics of the discovery, however, allege it to be a mere case of contamination.

University of Cyprus biological sciences Professor Leondios Kostrikis dubbed the new hybrid ‘Deltacron’, and warned on Friday that the world “will see in the future if this strain is more pathological or more contagious or if it will prevail” over current variants.

Twenty-five cases of Deltacron have already been recorded and reported to the GISAID Covid-19 mutation database. Kostrikis, however, said that the hybrid would likely be overpowered by the already mass-circulating Omicron variant.

Though some expressed concern over reports of yet another variant, several scientists dismissed the discovery as a media “scariant” and a false alarm.
