Researchers monitored wastewater in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba between December last year and January this year and found that the delta strain did not disappear as the Omicron strain accelerated. In “Clandestine Propagation”.

 

The prediction model developed by the research team shows that the transmission of the Omicron strain will “taper or even disappear” in the next few months, but the delta strain will continue to spread, which may lead to a new wave of delta.
