It looks like New year, new coronavirus term!
Many people worldwide kicked off 2022 by searching for information about “flurona.” Recently, Israel reported that two young pregnant women had tested positive for both the coronavirus and the flu.
Doctors have been concerned about the potential impact of a “twindemic.” The term “Flurona” refers to when one person has both respiratory infections simultaneously, which health officials say is a possibility as cases of the omicron variant surges this winter across the world.
Symptoms of Flurona
Both the coronavirus and influenza are respiratory infections, which can cause symptoms such as fever, coughing, fatigue, runny nose, sore throat, diarrhea, and muscle and body aches. Both infections can be fatal, although the severity of each diagnosis depends mainly on an individual’s immune system.
The World Health Organization states that the viruses are also transmitted in similar ways, through droplets and aerosols that can be passed on by coughing, sneezing, speaking, singing, or breathing, which is why masking to protect others is widely encouraged by officials.
While the word is relatively new and rising in popularity, cases of flu and coronavirus co-infections are not. And flurona is not a distinct disease.
