Leondios Kostrikis, who is also head of the Laboratory of Biotechnology and Molecular Virology at the university, told Cyprus TV network Sigma TV, on Friday that the discovery was named “Deltacron” due to the identification of Omicron-like genetic signatures within the Delta genomes, he said. “There are currently Omicron and Delta co-infections and we found this strain that is a combination of these two,” Kostrikis said in the interview, which was reported by Bloomberg.
