Experts deny existence of ‘Deltacron’ – new variant combining Omicron and Delta

The Metro says Health professionals have dismissed claims that a new Covid variant named ‘Deltacron’ has emerged that is a hybrid of the Delta and Omicron strains.

A strain with Omicron-like genetic signatures within the Delta genomes has been found in Cyprus, Leondios Kostrikis, professor of biological sciences at the University of Cyprus, announced this weekend.

Speaking to Sigma TV, he added that his team has identified 25 cases but it is still too early to assess its potential impact.

Eleven patients were already hospitalised while the 14 others were not, it was claimed.
