A rare fungal infection in COVID19 patients in India, BLACK FUNGUS
The second wave of Coronavirus fired back with new grown strength and new complications in patients that are very different from the first wave. The second wave reports a very rare fungal infection in the COVID19 patients. The fungal is called "Black Fungus" or "mucormycosis" in medical terms.
The infection is caused by a fungus named 'Mucor' found mainly on wet surfaces. The cases of black fungus are rapidly rising among patients, which is causing blindness, serious illness, or even death. Now, this is a rising concern in the medical world.
COVID19 Patients who recovered from mucormycosis in Maharashtra and Gujarat are now suffering from blindness.
According to Dr. Lahane, "They survived COVID-19, but the fungal infection attacked their weakened immune system."
"This disease is not new, but it is rising among COVID-19 patients in India because the excessive use of steroids elevates sugar levels and some medicines suppress the immunity of these patients leading to loss of vision and death in some cases. The Black Fungus infects a COVID-19 patient easily. If it reaches the brain, it can prove fatal", says Dr. Lahane.
