The Omicron variant virus in Europe and the United States continues to spread rapidly, with 368,000 new confirmed cases in France in a single day, a new high; more than 120,000 new cases in the United Kingdom in a single day; the number of hospitalizations in the United States reaches a record 146,000 . However, WHO experts said that Deltacron did not exist, or was caused by laboratory contamination.

The French Ministry of Health reported on Tuesday evening that 368,149 new cases were diagnosed in France in 24 hours, setting a new record for the highest number of confirmed cases in a single day since the outbreak of the epidemic. The previous highest single-day number of confirmed cases was January 5, with 332,252 cases. French Health Minister Veran said that the current “is undoubtedly a difficult stage. In the face of the severe epidemic, France’s right-wing majority Senate will consider the “Vaccine Pass Bill” on Tuesday. The French government hopes to replace the current health pass with a vaccine pass to enter the Proof of full vaccination against the new crown is required in public places such as catering and entertainment.

The UK added more than 120,000 new cases in a single day and 379 new deaths.

Italy added a record-breaking 220,000 new cases in a single day, and 294 new coronavirus-related deaths in a single day. There were 185 new critically ill patients, bringing the total to more than 1,600; while the total number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients exceeded 17,000.

Due to the rapid spread of Omicron, Slovenia and Serbia have both broken records for new cases in a single day.

The number of people hospitalized with the new coronavirus in the United States reached a record high of 146,000 on Tuesday, and the latest data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the number of critically ill patients at 24,000. The Omicron variant of the virus in the United States is showing a “blowout outbreak”. Since December last year, the number of single-day diagnoses has repeatedly hit new highs. White House medical adviser Fauci renewed his call on Tuesday for people to get vaccinated, saying that not getting vaccinated increases the chance of hospitalization after infection by 17 times and the chance of death by 20 times.

In addition, in response to the recent announcement by a team of Cypriot scholars that a new variant of Deltacron, which is a combination of a new variant virus strain Delta (Delta) and Omicron (Omicron), was discovered, experts from the World Health Organization said that Delta and Omicron were not combined. The so-called Deltacron may just be caused by laboratory contamination.

Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO’s technical director for the new crown epidemic, posted on Twitter, calling on the public to stop using words such as Deltacron and Flurona. Flurona refers to cases of co-infection with the new coronavirus and influenza.

Van Kerhoff said the so-called Deltacron was most likely caused by contamination of the virus during the sequencing process. She pointed out that the word Deltacron implies that Delta and Omicron combine to mutate, but “this did not happen.”

Separately, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday that more than half of the European population could be infected with the new coronavirus Omicron variant within the next two months, but it cannot yet be considered an endemic flu-like disease.
