The study marks the first time that such a cooperation between viruses has been observed. The researchers believe that it could help explain why co-infections can lead to significantly worse illness in some patients, including the notoriously difficult to treat viral pneumonia. Since viral pneumonia is caused by a virus and not bacteria like bacterial pneumonia, it doesn't respond to antibiotics for treatment.""Some previous studies show that co-infections do not alter the outcome of disease, wile others have found an increase in cases of viral pneumonia from them."So no replicated studies data yet on this currently. Another round of 'it's everywhere, it's everywhere' as those of us immune compromised wade through the flu season. urm.. the possible triple-demic season.
