"Pandemic Far From Over": Hybrid Omicron and Delta variant reported in many places
New Delhi : People recently took a sigh of relief thinking that the pandemic is now over as the number of new coronavirus cases have subsided; but now it has been learned that a Hybrid variant of Omicron and Delta is spreading in many places like France, Netherlands and Denmark.
Since it is in the beginning phase with not many cases, the scientists are unable to define its severity and causes.
"No noticeable changes have been registered yet in the severity, but studies are underway to know more about it," said WHO in its news conference.
"There is a possibility that it may soon spread among humans. So pandemic is far from over," WHO added.
The new variant has been unofficially named Deltacron. So far, WHO has refrained from marking it as a "variant of concern."
