Experts say the Deltacron variant will not last long, why?

Suara.com – The deltacron variant, or the new Covid-19 variant combining the omicron and delta variants – probably won’t be around for much longer. Because health experts may change its name in the future.

Reporting from The Desert News, Dr. John Swartzberg, a professor of infectious diseases at the University of California Berkeley, told KRON4-TV that the “deltacron” variant could get a new name in the future as the World Health Organization continues to monitor it.

It sounds pretty ominous if you take the worst aspects of delta, which is a more serious disease, and you combine that with the worst aspects of the highly contagious omicron then you have something that sounds really scary, Swartzberg told KRON4-TV.

“There is absolutely no evidence that this new recombinant virus has any of those qualities at all.”

For information the World Health Organization confirmed a variant of the new coronavirus last week in the deltacron.

The new variant appears to be a combination of the delta variant and the omicron variant, as I reported for Deseret News.

“We haven’t seen any epidemiological changes with this recombinant. We haven’t seen any change in severity. But there is a lot of research going on,” said WHO Covid-19 technical lead Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove at a press conference Wednesday.

Later, William Lee, chief science officer at Helix, told USA Today that the new variant might not mean much in the long run.

“The fact that not many, even the two cases we’ve seen are different, suggests that it’s probably not going to escalate to a level of concern variance,” Lee said.
