The world's first case: the new crown + flu combination "flurona" is here! The number of confirmed cases in Europe has exceeded 100 million! This is the case in the United States!

Jan 05, 2022

Suddenly, today, the Israeli media released a major discovery that once again shocked the world.


Recently, Israel discovered the first case of "Flurona", which, as the name suggests, is a combination of two viruses, influenza (Flu) and new coronavirus (Coronavirus).


The new crown, a virus that has infected 290 million people and killed 5.45 million people.


Influenza, a virus that causes 3 million severe cases and 200,000 to 500,000 deaths worldwide each year.


Now there have been cases of double infection!


This co-infection of Covid-19 and flu was discovered in a pregnant woman in the Israeli city of Petah Tikva.


"The new mother tested positive for both viruses," said Petah Tikva, a gynecologist at Beilinson Hospital in Israel.


Some reports believe this is the world's first case of both viruses being diagnosed at the same time, but others believe that there have been similar cases in the United States earlier.


In the winter of 2 years ago, in late February 2020, a man with a very severe cough and fever showed up in a New York hospital.


There was no coronavirus outbreak in New York at the time.


The emergency doctor, still cautiously wearing protective equipment, performed a nasal swab test on the man, which came back positive for the flu.



Several medical staff breathed a sigh of relief and took off their protective clothing.


However, at this time, an infectious disease doctor said: "What if he is also infected with the new crown at the same time?"


So they did the test again and found that the man was indeed infected with the new crown and the flu at the same time, and their family of four fell.


If two viruses break out at the same time, the medical system may collapse, and Israel is facing such a crisis now!


It is reported that nearly 2,000 people in Israel are currently hospitalized due to influenza infection. Hospitals are full of patients. New crown patients and influenza patients are likely to be cross-infected, and the epidemic may continue to worsen.


The Israeli Ministry of Health says 1,849 Israelis are currently hospitalized with the flu, including 605 children and 124 pregnant women.


And cases continue to rise.


Last week, a 31-year-old woman in Jerusalem, Israel, died after contracting the flu. She was nine months pregnant and did not receive a Covid-19 or flu shot.


It is reported that the woman's condition deteriorated rapidly at the time, and she was put on a ventilator. She died after giving birth to her son by caesarean section.


Therefore, the Ministry of Health recommends that Israelis get the flu vaccine.


Last winter, the flu seemed to disappear under the threat of the new crown, but this year is different.


Today, several patients in Israel have been put on ventilators due to respiratory complications from the flu, and many more have died.


Experts believe that flu symptoms are often more severe than the common cold, and that the immune system is weaker than ever when you have the flu, so you're more likely to catch both viruses.


Sometimes a double infection is a double whammy.


But sometimes double infection isn't always bad.


In some cases, the researchers believe, viruses compete with each other for the cells of their hosts, sometimes losing one, or both.


We don't yet know whether Flurona will bring good or bad news, and researchers are watching studies to see if the combination leads to more severe disease.



Omicron sets off a tsunami of epidemics in Europe and the United States

Recently, the wild spread of Omicron's new crown variants has led to an exponential rise in the number of new cases in Europe and the United States, constantly breaking the highest record since the outbreak!


More countries said that due to insufficient testing and lagging statistics, the real data may be much larger than the officially released data.


Last week, the United States broke records four times. The daily increase in confirmed cases exceeded 500,000 at one point, and the 7-day average of daily new cases reached a record high of 386,000.


Currently, America is in chaos.


In New York, three subway lines have been forced to stop service because workers are resting due to the virus.


In Ohio, where the state deployed 1,250 National Guard troops, the health care system was crippled by a shortage of hospital staff.


Not to mention, thousands of flights have been cancelled and delayed due to sick leave from crew members!


The Federal Aviation Administration said an "increasing number" of its employees had tested positive for COVID-19 and had to cancel flights for safety.


The governor of the New Jersey hospital said there were as many patients in the hospital as it was at the worst of last winter, with no signs of improvement.


"Get ready. We have to remember, in the next few weeks, there's going to be an unprecedented number of social disruptions,"


The situation in Europe is not optimistic.


On the first day of the new year, the cumulative number of confirmed new crown cases in Europe has exceeded 100 million, accounting for more than 1/3 of the global infection cases!


The total number of deaths is more than 1 million.



According to official statistics, since the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, a total of 100,074,753 people in Europe have been infected with the new crown virus.


Among the confirmed cases in Europe, more than 4.9 million cases have been reported in the past 7 days alone, and 17 of 52 countries and regions have rewritten the previous record for the highest number of confirmed cases in a single week.


France alone has recorded more than 1 million new cases in the past week, equivalent to 10% of the cumulative total reported since the outbreak began.


The data shows that the countries with the highest infections per 100,000 inhabitants are all in Europe:


Denmark, the worst-hit country, had 2,045 infections per 100,000 people, by Cyprus (1,969) and Ireland (1,964).


The way to open in 2022 may not be so ideal, but I hope this year, the epidemic will turn around.
