Los Angeles County, California– A coronavirus testing site in Brentwood near the Getty Center has reported the first case of “flurona” in Los Angeles County. It is important to note, this is not a new strain of Covid-19. Instead, flurona is being used to describe those who test positive for both coronavirus and influenza at the same time.
After returning from a recent trip to Mexico, a child is said to have tested positive, according to reports from the testing site.
Flurona was first detected in Israel a few weeks ago, in an unvaccinated woman who was pregnant.
According to the Los Angeles Department of Health, coronavirus cases continue to rise in L.A County, with over 2,000 new infections reported this week.
