Is Flurona Something To Be Concerned?

Flurona is not a new disease, to begin with, but the infection of both the coronavirus and influenza. The news about Flurona became known worldwide when Israel reported that two pregnant women tested positive for covid and the flu. Nevertheless, the Flurona cases are not new. In 2020, a man in New York entered a hospital with severe symptoms, and the doctors found out that he was infected with both viruses. Now, everybody’s question, is it dangerous? Little data is recorded about Flurona cases because patients are not usually tested for both viruses. However, coronavirus and influenza are respiratory diseases; they have similar symptoms, such as runny nose, muscle pain, fever, coughing, sore throat, and others. According to doctors, both infections can cause death, yet it depends on the strength of the person’s immune system. As with coronavirus, the elderly and people with underlying health conditions are the ones who are more at risk with Flurona. The best way to combat these viruses is with vaccination, which can help to lower the symptoms. As long as you are vaccinated for covid and the flu, you are protected against Flurona. The Omicron variant and the flu season can increase the cases of Flurona, so you should still follow safety precautions. Remember that your immune system weakens after an infection; thus, preventing getting infected by any virus is better.
