Coronavirus and cold symptoms outlined by Dr Amir

The first case of Flurona, a combination of coronavirus and influenza, has been found in a young pregnant woman in Israel, according to reports.

The young woman, a patient in Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva., 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 examination at the hospital in Petach Tikva.

The Israeli Health Ministry is studying the results.

The woman has presented with comparatively mild symptoms of the disease that “causes difficulty breathing.”

However, the health ministry in Israel is studying the combination of the two infections to detect if it could cause a more serious illness.

Now experts in Israel have said that several other patients have contracted the two viruses but have not been diagnosed.

Professor Arnon Vizhnitser director of the hospitals’ Gynecology Department said: “Last year, we did not observe flu situations among pregnant or birthing women.

“Today, we are seeing situations of both coronavirus and the flu that are starting to rear their head.

“We are seeing more and more pregnant women with the flu.

“The disease is the same disease; they’re viral and cause difficulty breathing since both attack the upper respiratory tract.,” an expert said

“It is definitely a great challenge dealing with a woman who comes in with a fever at childbirth.

“This is especially when you do not know if it’s coronavirus or the flu, so you refer to them the same.

“Most of the illness is respiratory.”

Mr Vizhnitser additional that the patient did not experience any unusually serious symptoms.
