“The Department of Health in Cataluña has reported the first cases of “flurona” in Spain, in which patients are simultaneously infected with coronavirus and influenza,” Euro Weekly News reports.

According to the Ministry of Health, the cases are mild.

"Flurona", a combination of the words flu and corona, was first found in a pregnant woman in Israel who was infected with both viruses at the same time. Her symptoms were mild.

“[Both diseases are] viral and cause difficulty breathing since both attack the upper respiratory tract,” director of the Petah Tikva city Beilinson Hospital gynecology department Arnon Vizhnitser said.

Flurona is not a new strain of coronavirus, like Omicron and Delta. So far there have been no known cases of this kind of co-infection, patients had either one virus or another.

There are not yet enough data to predict whether this may be more dangerous for patients. However, experts warn that it may worsen the symptoms.

At the same time, Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Igor Kuzin admitted the possibility of introducing a lockdown in Ukraine due to the new Omicron coronavirus strain.
