From June 28 to September 12 the Delta variant is dominant at 100% in the Cyprus Republic, according to the Ministry of Health.

An announcement made on Wednesday says that the Ministry was informed yesterday about the completion of specialised sequencing tests for SARS-CoV-2 virus strains, in samples of positive individuals analysed by a private laboratory in Cyprus, which has signed a contract with the Ministry.

Virus variant detection was successful in 90 samples out of a total of 92 sent. The samples were collected from all districts between August 23-September 12. All 90 samples in which the sequencing was successful were identified as strain B.1.617.2 (Delta variant). Sequencing was not possible for the other 2 samples.
