As the world continues its fight against Covid-19 and the ever-spreading monkeypox virus, it seems as though there’s another illness gaining a foothold.

“Tomato flu” was first identified in India on May 6 and has so far infected 82 children, who are all under the age of FIVE, according to a study by the Lancet Respiratory Medicine Journal.


A further 26 kids up to the age of 10 are suspected of having cases of tomato flu, the New York Post reports.

Aptly named for the red blisters that appear on the skin, the new virus comes armed with fever and joint pain.

This seems to only affect very young children. They think it's caused by intestinal viruses that adults already have built immune systems to fight off.
