The first case of Flurona was found in a young pregnant woman in Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva. Flurona is a dangerous mixture of coronavirus and influenza. The young woman was unvaccinated and results from the hospital detected the co-presence of both the flu and the Covid 19 pathogens.
Local press in Israel reported the woman was found positive for the two infections during analysis at the hospital in Petach Tikva.
The Israeli Health Ministry is studying the results.
The woman has presented with relatively mild symptoms of the disease.
However, the health ministry in Israel is studying the combination of the two infections to detect if it could cause a more serious illness.
