Information circulating on social media states that the Corona Delmicron variant is a new Corona variant which is a combination of the Delta and Omicron variants.
In fact, until now there has been no official information regarding the existence of the Corona Delmicron variant. This was confirmed by the Spokesperson for the Covid-19 Task Force of the Indonesian Ministry of Health, dr. Nadia Tarmizi, who said that until now his party had not received official information about the Delmicron variant from the World Health Organization (WHO). The head of the Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI) Covid-19 Handling Task Force, Zubairi Djoerban, also dismissed the Delmicron variant. Zubairi explained, Delmicron is not a new variant of Covid-19, but a term for a situation that describes the spike in Covid-19 cases due to the Delta and Omicron variants. Epidemiologist from Griffith University Dicky Budiman also called the Delmicron variant a hoax that was born from a random theory. Dicky continued, currently there is no marriage between the two variants. Currently there is a recombinant in Brazil between Gamma and a derivative or subvariant of Delta. He also added that when discussing new variants, usually the naming of variants is only done by WHO.
