The world is already fighting Delta and Omicron of the Corona virus. While millions of people are losing their lives to the virus, a new form of corona has emerged. Leondios Kostrikis, a professor of biological sciences in Cyprus, claims that a new form of SARS-Cavi-2 with features of both delta and omicron has been found in his country. Kostrikis, a professor at the University of Cyprus, claims that we have found a new type of deltacron, both Delta and Omicron. According to the report, Leondios and his team have identified 25 cases of deltacron in Cyprus. Let me tell you that Deltacron has not yet been identified by any international health organization.

The report says nothing definite can be said about Deltacron right now. What role Deltacron will play in the fight against COVID-19 on the global stage has not yet been confirmed. But researcher Leondios Kostrikis, who discovered Deltacron, said the new strain would be more contagious than Omicron. Some virologists say that deltacron is not a new species because it cannot be found on phylogenetic trees. According to scientists, Tom Peacock, giving information on social media, said that the report that has been shared in the media about Deltacron so far is corrupt.

The virus is of RNL nature and resembles SARS-CoV-2, said Sunit K Singh, a virologist at the Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University. It is primarily respiratory in nature. Let me tell you – there are millions of cases of coronavirus around the world every day. At present, more than one and a half lakh cases are being registered in India every day.
