“These are viruses of completely different species that use different receptors to infect, and there is not much interaction between them”, highlighted at a press conference the epidemiologist of the WHO Abdi Mahamud.
- Brazil registered the first four cases of flurone in America
- Spain detects the first cases of Flurona, the combination of COVID-19 and flu at the same time
- Israel detects the first case of “flurone”, an infection of coronavirus and flu at the same time
Mutations of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 They are usually generated especially in unvaccinated people, where the pathogen has a better chance of replicating, added the specialist.
The main objective must remain “to vaccinate everyone so that the chances of mutation are reduced,” Mahamud stressed.
The expert considered normal that more cases of flurona than in the previous season, due to the greater relaxation in many societies, which has led to a reduction in vaccinations against influenza.
