Flurona

What is flurona?

Having both the flu and covid

No, flurona isn't a new covid variant. Instead, it's a word people use to describe having both the flu and covid at the same time.

Several cases of flurona made headlines in early 2022, prompting journalists and others to add this portmanteau of "flu" and "corona" to their lexicons. For example, on January 5, 2022, Los Angeles County reported a flurona case that became well-publicized.

In some instances, you may see people use flurona to describe the experience of contracting the flu and covid back-to-back, instead of simultaneously. You may also see people use the word twindemic when discussing healthcare workers' attempts to combat both the flu and covid at the same time.

Example

"Covid was bad enough; I can't imagine having flurona."
