Covid-19: New Variant Deltacron And Everything You Need To Know About It
It seems like it’s another day, another variant of COVID is being identified. This time scientists are saying that there is a new strain that is a combination of the delta and omicron variant called “deltacron.”

 

According to Bloomberg, Leondios Kostrikis, a professor of biological sciences at the University of Cyprus, spoke about the new possible variant and said, that it has an “omicron-like genetic signatures within the delta genomes.” At the moment, it’s too early to determine the impact of the strain or if there are more cases.

Kostrikis said, “We will see in the future if this strain is more pathological or more contagious or if it will prevail against the two dominant strains, delta, and omicron.”

The researcher’s findings were sent to GISAID, which is an international database that tracks viruses.

Reports about the omicron variant started to surface last November.

It was first detected in Botswana before making its way to other parts of the world. Shortly after, the numbers of positive cases began to rise and greatly impacted the holiday season.

According to CNBC, the U.S. is reporting a seven-day average of more than 600,000 new cases daily.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.

Bulgaria’s gas network had also said the country was still receiving Russian gas as of this morning.

We are yet to see any data of gas volumes into Poland or Bulgaria since Gazprom’s announcement just now.

New Omicron Variant BA.2 Is Now The Leading Version Of COVID-19 And Considered “Highly Contagious”

JUST IN: Ghana Records Two New Cases Of Omicron COVID-19 Variant

 

BA.2, the new Omicron variant that led to a surge of new COVID-19 cases in Europe, has now overtaken the U.S. as the most dominant version of the virus throughout the country. This latest data estimate is from a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, whose director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, predicted that BA.2 would quickly become dominate in the U.S

The first case of the BA.2 was initially identified in the U.S. back in December. Meanwhile, scientists have been closely watching BA.2—which is now the third of the genetically distinct varieties of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The rapid growth of BA.2 is due partially to its eight gene mutations that spike protein on the virus’s surface, something that is not found in the previous strain, BA.1.

Although BA.2 is more transmissible than BA.1, as of now there are no signs that it causes more severe illness and it’s shown that vaccines continue to protect against the worst outcomes.

Many U.S. health officials said that they expect cases to rise and are firmly blaming U.S. residents for not doing enough to prevent another potential surge of COVID-19.
