The first case of “flurone” in the world: infection with influenza and coronavirus at the same time

The unique case was detected after the young woman, who is pregnant and unvaccinated, was examined at the Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva where she showed mild symptoms. According to local reports, doctors found traces of both Covid-19 and influenza pathogens in the patient’s body.

The Israeli Ministry of Health is studying the results to determine if the combination of the two infections can cause more serious diseases.
“She was diagnosed with the flu and coronavirus as soon as she arrived. Both tests came out positive, even after I checked again. The disease is about the same: transmission is viral and causes difficulty breathing, as both attack the upper respiratory tract, “said Professor Arnon Vizhnitser, director of the hospital’s Gynecology Department, according to

He added that the woman was expected to leave the hospital on Thursday.

The first officially confirmed case. It is believed that several people are in the same situation, undiagnosed for the time being

Although it is believed that it was the first documented case of double infection, experts in the country believe that there are others who have not yet been diagnosed.

Professor Vizhnitser continued: “Last year, we did not see cases of flu among pregnant or giving birth women. Today, we are seeing cases of both coronavirus and influenza starting to go through their heads.

“We are seeing more and more women getting pregnant with the flu. It is certainly a great challenge to deal with a woman who has a fever at birth. This is especially true when you do not know if it is coronavirus or flu, so you refer to them as well. Most of the disease is respiratory.

Omicron, gentler than previous Covid variants

The horrific scenes seen in previous waves of Covid-19 are “now history,” according to John Bell, a professor of medicine at Oxford University and an adviser to the British government in the life sciences, quoted by CNBC.

In an interview with BBC Radio 4, Bell analyzed data from the United Kingdom, where the number of cases reached record values, and hospitalizations reached the highest level since March. He said the number of people in intensive care units being vaccinated remains “very, very low”.

“The incidence of serious illness and death from this disease has practically not changed since we were all vaccinated, and that is very important to remember,” he told the BBC.

Discussing the new omicron variant, he added: “The disease seems to be less severe, and many people spend a relatively short time in the hospital. They do not need high-flow oxygen, the average length of stay is apparently three days, not it’s the same disease I saw a year ago. “
