Local press reports report that the Israeli Ministry of Health is studying the results of the combination of the two infections to see if it could lead to a more serious illness.

Israeli experts say several other patients were infected with the two viruses but undiagnosed.

Professor Arnon Vizhnitser, Director of the Department of Gynecology of the Hospitals, said: “Last year we did not see any flu cases in pregnant or giving birth women.

“Today we see both coronavirus and flu cases starting to raise their heads. We are seeing more and more pregnant women with flu.

“Dealing with a woman who has a fever at birth is definitely a tough challenge. This is especially the case if you don’t know if it’s coronavirus or flu, so refer to it right away. Most Diseases are respiratory diseases. “

Mr. Vizhnitser added that the patient did not have any unusually severe symptoms.

He added, “She was diagnosed with flu and coronavirus immediately upon arrival. Both tests were positive even after we checked again.

“The disease is the same disease; they are viral and cause breathing difficulties as both affect the upper respiratory tract.”
