‘Black Fungus’or Mucormycisis-Explained

-

In patients with coronavirus disease, doctors in Delhi hospitals are documenting an increase in cases of black fungus, a rare fungal infection also known as Mucormycisis (Covid-19). Doctors had previously identified multiple cases of Covid-19-induced infection after at least ten individuals were infected within 15 days. COVID-19 causes mucormycosis, a fungal infection. Black fungus, also known as mucormycosis, has long been a source of disease and death in transplant recipients, intensive care units, and immunocompromised patients.

It is possible that the use of steroids in COVID-19 care, along with the fact that many coronavirus patients have diabetes, is one of the reasons for this increase.

It’s possible that the use of steroids in COVID-19 care, along with the fact that many coronavirus patients have diabetes, is one of the reasons for the recent increase in black fungus cases.

Patients with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to this deadly infection.

After inhaling fungal spores from the air, the infection most often affects the sinuses or lungs, or the skin after the fungus enters through a cut, burn, or other forms of skin injury. It can affect any part of the body, according to the alert.
