Due to the shortage of medicines for the treatment of post-Covid fungal disease black fungus or Mucormycosis, the situation is getting worse, said Ajit Pawar,  Deputy Chief Minister of Pune. Till Friday, the district had recorded more than 300 cases of black fungus and the demand for injections per day has increased to almost 1,800 as daily 6 injections are given to the patient. There is no more shortage of Remdesivir, the Minister said.

 Ajit Pawar said that“Currently in Pune there are more than 300 cases of black fungus. In Pune, patients from outstation are also hospitalised. There is a shortage of injections for this disease. The issue of this shortage has been raised with the Prime Minister. We have contacted the manufacturer of these medicines and they have said that we have to give it to the Centre first, and then it will be allocated to states. At least 1,800 injections are required in Pune district in a day, but those many are unavailable. We are trying to do what we can."

To regulate the supply and increase in the distribution of medicines required for the treatment of Mucormycosis patients, a control room was formed at Pune on May 18. The first distribution was done on Thursday by the district administration to most of the private hospitals.
