What is florona?
Florona is a combined infection of coronavirus and flu. It is not a new variant of Covid-19, however, it is a double infection.
Till now, there is no proper definition of florona by the World Health Organization (WHO) but it said that “it is possible to catch both diseases at the same time”.
“The most effective way to prevent hospitalization and severe Covid-19 and influenza is vaccination with both vaccines,” WHO said.
