It seems unclear to me. I'm inclined to say "you track them separately". After all, not every affliction even uses the same progression states, it would lead to weird and arbitrary sometimes-stacking if you tried to mix them together. Besides, afflictions are deadly enough as is, you don't *really* need to make them deadlier.
So, if someone has both Radiation Sickness and Red Ache, you track them separately, and apply their penalties separately. A lot of those penalties would be redundant, sure ( you can't be double Nauseous or Staggered, say ), but double sickness means the victim is still in much worse shape. Two diseases means they have twice as many chances to fail saves and progress, and will similarly take longer to recover. That's nasty enough.
