His name is Acrux and it is a new Sars-Cov-2 variant that has been identified in recent weeks between India, where it appeared for the first time, and the United States, with some isolated cases in Spain and other areas of Asia.

The characteristics of Acrux are still being studied, and experts are not yet able to indicate whether this will manage to be contagious and become dominant over the other variants.

In Italy, as in the rest of the world, there are still 5 main widespread variants, all deriving from Omicron: these are Kraken, Arturo, Centaurus, Cerberus and Hyperion.
