Doctors at Bellingson Hospital in Petah City said that the first Flurona case was discovered in an unvaccinated young Israeli pregnant woman. This is a rare case of dual infection of the new coronavirus and influenza. Tikva has gone abroad.

Israel is currently seeing a surge in Omicron, with more than 9,000 cases registered yesterday. Although the United Kingdom has no confirmed cases and the patient has milder symptoms, her two positive results have raised concerns about the possibility of new dual infections. How common is it? Will you fall in the UK? Will two infections cause more serious illness?

From symptoms that need attention to the possibility of transmission, this is what we currently know about Flurona.

How did flurona come from?

As the name suggests, flurona describes a rare dual infection of coronavirus and flu. In recent days, the word came up after a patient in Israel was found to have tested positive for both diseases when he was admitted to the hospital on Thursday-this is the first recorded case in the world.

The young woman was pregnant and reported only mild symptoms, but health officials soon began to study her case to determine whether the combination would cause more serious illness.

“She was diagnosed with influenza and coronavirus as soon as she arrived,” Professor Arnon Vizhnitser, director of the hospital’s gynecology department, told the Jewish newspaper Hamodia.

“Even after we checked again, both tests were positive. The disease is the same disease. They are viral and cause breathing difficulties because they both attack the upper respiratory tract.”

According to the latest report, the patient is expected to be discharged from the hospital on Thursday.

It is difficult for scientists to determine the exact set of symptoms, but the most common effect of florona may be a combination of Covid and flu.

According to reports, Israeli patients do experience breathing difficulties because Omicron has shown many of the same symptoms as flu or colds. The main effects may include high temperature, fatigue, pain, sneezing, dry cough and/or hoarseness of the throat.

Professor Vizhnitser confirmed that both infections are viral and cause breathing difficulties. “This disease is the same disease,” he said. “They are viral and can cause breathing difficulties because they both attack the upper respiratory tract.”

How likely is it to spread?

Much of the content about the infectivity and severity of the flu virus is still unknown, but doctors have confirmed that other cases may occur-this is the result of an increase in flu cases due to the relaxation of restrictions and the rapid spread of Omicron variants.

“We are seeing more and more pregnant women contracting the flu,” Professor Vizhnitser said. “For a woman who has a fever during childbirth, this is definitely a huge challenge.

“Especially when you don’t know whether it is coronavirus or flu, so you call them the same way. Most diseases are respiratory diseases.”
