The first ever case of ‘Florona’ disease or a double infection of both Covid-19 and influenza has been detected in Israel recently that has caused concerns within the world health community due to its serious risk to the body’s immune system.

As reported by news18, the first Florona case was recorded earlier this week in a pregnant woman in Israel who was admitted to the Rabin Medical Centre to give birth. It is reported that the woman was not vaccinated.

The news of the Florona disease comes at a time when the world is seeing a surge in Covid-19 cases due to the Omicron variant. Recently, countries such as the United States, France and United Kingdom have seen record high Covid-19 infection rates and hospitalisation due to the spread of the new variant.

Florona itself is not a new Covid-19 variant but instead the simultaneous infection of both Coronavirus and influenza. However, this disease could pose a serious health risk as according to Dr Nahla Abdel Wahab, a doctor at Cairo University Hospital, Florona could potentially indicate a major breakdown of the immunity system as two viruses are entering the human body at the same time.

Furthermore, following the discovery of Florona, Israel said that it is currently studying the new disease as the country is currently seeing a surge in influenza cases. The country has been one of the first in the world to have its population vaccinated against Covid-19 and has recently already begun administering fourth vaccine shots against the virus to individuals with a compromised immune system.
