Another COVID-19 Variant Discovered As Countries Enter Into A New Year

Onyxnewsng reports that Florona, known as a double infection of COVID-19 and influenza, has been detected in Isreal, Arab News said on Friday.

This is coming after Corona, Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Omicron infections were detected.

Florona was first found in a pregnant woman at the Rabin Medical Center, an Israeli newspaper reported.

The woman had visited the hospital to give birth, when the infection was discovered.

The Omicron variant of Covid-19 had already dampened New Year celebrations around the world.

With a new disease on the block right on the last day of 2021, people are definitely not impressed.

Many expressed their concerns on what the new year holds and took to social media for the regular dose of memes.

Israel on Friday began delivering a fourth vaccine dose for people most vulnerable to coronavirus, becoming one of the first countries to do so as it prepares for a wave of infections driven by the omicron variant.

Meanwhile, India saw a single-day rise of 22,775 new COVID-19 cases, highest since October 6, while the number of active cases surpassed one lakh and Omicron infection tally reached 1,431, the Union Health Ministry said on Saturday.

The world spent 2020 huddled in shock and 2021 humbled in hope. Will 2022 bring some semblance of normalcy? Only if we accept that coronavirus, complete with Omicron and all upcoming avatars, will be part of our new normal.

The world carries physical and mental scars of the brutal second wave, even as a third wave, looms. But our immune system is learning, say experts.
