SEOUL, Sept. 28 (Yonhap) -- Three people contracted the coronavirus and the flu simultaneously earlier this year, a top South Korean health official said Monday.

The three tested positive for both influenza and COVID-19 in late February in the southeastern industrial city of Daegu and the surrounding North Gyeongsang Province, Jeong Eun-kyeong, head of the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency, said in a press briefing.

She said the three never were in serious condition.

The two areas were hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year.

Jeong said contractions of the coronavirus and the flu simultaneously have also been reported in other countries.
