Israel Records World’s First Case Of ‘Florona’ Disease, A Double Infection Of Covid-19 And Influenza

Israel had confirmed its first-ever ‘Florona’ case, which is said to be a double infection of both Covid-19 and influenza on last Thursday (30 December 2021).

The findings had caused concerns within the world health community due to its serious risk to the body’s immune system.

According to news18, the first Florona case was detected last week in a pregnant woman in Israel who was admitted to the Rabin Medical Centre to give birth. The woman was unvaccinated and had mild symptoms.

The news shocked the world community as countries worldwide recorded a surge in Covid-19 cases due to the Omicron variant. Countries such as the United States, France, and the United Kingdom have seen record-high Covid-19 infection rates and hospitalisation due to the spread of the new variant.

Meanwhile, Florona is not a new Covid-19 variant but it is considered to be the simultaneous infection of both Covid-19 and influenza.

According to Dr Nahla Abdel Wahab, a doctor at Cairo University Hospital, the disease could pose a serious health risk as it could potentially indicate a major breakdown of the immunity system as 2 viruses are entering the human body at the same time.

Following the discovery of Florona, Israel said it will be conducting studies into the new disease as the country is currently seeing a surge in influenza cases.

Israel has been one of the first in the world to have its population vaccinated against Covid-19 and it has recently already begun administering fourth vaccine shots against the virus to individuals with a compromised immune system.
