A person has tested positive for both the flu and the coronavirus in Solano County, California, the county health department said.  Such co-infection is so far rare and is the first such case to be reported in the county but not the country.  At least two such cases have been reported, in Texas and Northern California.  Experts have warned that if Covid-19 cases remain high as flu season begins, the U.S. could face a “twindemic,” with both viruses circulating at high levels.
