Amidst the growing global threat of the Omicron variant of Corona, cases of ‘Delmicron’ are being reported in many countries of the world. Health experts say that while Omicron’s rapidly increasing infection has raised concerns, Delmicron is being seen as an even bigger problem. Delmicron means the simultaneous infection of the Omicron and Delta variants of the Corona. Cases of combining Omicron and delta variants have been reported in patients in several countries, including the United States. Scientists say that since both these variants of Corona are very contagious and deadly, simultaneous infection with them can cause significant problems.
Health experts say, Delmicron is not a new variant of the Corona, but the name given to a condition caused by a combination of two variants. Cases have been reported in Europe and the US. Let us try to know about the nature and characteristics of Delmicron.
Delmicron has raised concerns
In a recent report, Maharashtra Covid-19 Task Force officer Dr Shashank Joshi said that Delmicron, which originated from the twin spikes of Delta and Omicron, has worsened the situation in many countries. In some reports, serious infections have also been found in people due to Delmicron. On the one hand, where scientists worldwide are still studying to know more about Omicron, Delmicron has raised concerns.
What can be its symptoms?
Reports suggest that since Delmicron is a combination of Delta and Omicron variants, it is more likely to be highly contagious and cause severe symptoms. More research is still needed to get detailed information about its nature. As for its symptoms, being a combination of Delta and Omicron, Delmicron infection can cause more or less the same symptoms as those seen in Delta and Omicron.
Lack of smell or taste.
runny or blocked nose.
A painful condition such as a sore throat or rash.
Serious complications can occur
Studies show that both Delta and Omicron are fast spreading variants. The delta variant is believed to be more lethal in studies, while Omicron is more contagious. In this case, infections caused by Delmicron can put people at risk for serious health complications. However, nothing can be said clearly about its nature until studies confirm it. For the time being, everyone needs to keep following all the necessary measures to prevent Covid-19 continuously.
