Desde que se declaró la pandemia de la COVID-19, ha sido una gran incógnita cómo será la respuesta ante la posibilidad de que segmentos de la población puedan contraer dos infecciones respiratorias, lo que viene a denominarse coinfección: el SARS-CoV-2, por un lado, y los influenza virus por otro.

Es evidente que este año no podemos hablar solo de gripe, pues el SARS-CoV-2 continúa activo y con gran virulencia. Es por ello que un gran equipo de autores, tras el éxito alcanzado por el anterior libro publicado en abril de 2020, 50 preguntas y respuestas sobre el coronavirus (COVID-19) y tras la experiencia clínica adquirida, ofrecen con este nuevo libro poder responder a algunas cuestiones que la experiencia y la evidencia ha proporcionado.  

Por otro lado, el creciente interés por saber más sobre cómo afecta el virus que nos visita todos los años como es el de la gripe, el cual supone un importante problema para la salud pública, y que hoy preocupa por la coincidencia con el SARS-CoV-2. Se aventura un periodo que probablemente será complicado y difícil, pues al encontrarnos en plena expansión de ambos virus, por lo que se hace más necesaria la prevención a través de la vacunación en el caso de la gripe; sin embargo, al no ser esto posible de momento con el SARS-CoV-2, es clave la información para minimizar algunos riesgos tanto en el personal sanitario como en la población en general. Esta es la misión de la obra que tiene en sus manos, conocer algunas respuestas que se nos plantean en pleno episodio epidémico y pandémico.
