The first case of a patient infected with both COVID-19 and Influenza has been detected in Israel, APA reports citing Sputnik.
The Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva said the so-called 'flurona' patient was a pregnant woman who had not been vaccinated against coronavirus.
The hospital said she was only displaying mild symptoms, according to the Times of Israel, although the UK's Daily Mirror reported she was experiencing breathing difficulties.
“She was diagnosed with the flu and coronavirus as soon as she arrived," gyneacology department director Professor Arnon Vizhnitser told newspaper Hamodia. “Both tests came back positive, even after we checked again."
