It's a new year and here comes some new terms and trends.

We are only a few days into the new year and a new illness has seemed to arrive and people are calling it "Flurona".

Flurona is a combination of COVID-19 and influenza, and yes we have our first case of Flurona.

A young lady in Isreal reportedly contracted both Covid and the flu. thus Flurona technically does exist now.

Sure, some will say that the Flu and Corona are the same, but medical experts may beg to differ.

As for the young lady who had Flurona, she gave birth to a healthy baby and she appears to be improving.

And no, we don't know if she named her baby "Flurona," but it is worth noting that maybe she should have.

Also, if you're asking if the young lady in Isreal is the only person to contract both infections, the answer is no. The World Health Organization however has only recognized the young woman's case in Isreal, thus far.

I encourage you to protect yourself from both COVID and influenza as we enter the winter months. Take precautionary measures to protect yourself and others during these weird times.

Disclaimer, the flu and Covid are separate viruses that both attack the upper respiratory tract and can be deadly if you contract them separately or both at the same time.
