Amid rising cases of the rampant new strain of the coronavirus, Omicron, Israel recorded the first case of 'florona' disease, according to Arab news.

Arab News tweeted on Friday, "#Israel records first case of #florona disease, a double infection of #COVID19 and influenza".

The double infection was detected in a pregnant woman in Israel who was admitted to a medical facility for giving birth. She was also not vaccinated, Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

It should be noted that 'florona' is not a new variant of Covid-19. Israeli doctors are studying it as a spike has been witnessed in influenza cases recently.


Contracting florona indicates that the immune system of a body has severely lapsed as two different viruses are simultaneously infecting the body. However, there is no need for undue panic as it is not a new variant.


Earlier, there were unconfirmed reports about the detection of Delmicron, which also is not a new variant. In Europe and the United States of America, there were cases where the SARS-CoV-2 variants Delta and Omicron infected a body at the same time.

Notably, the World Health Organization (WHO) has so far named Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Omicron as variants of concern of SARS-CoV-2.
