According to experts, the rising incidence of mucormycosis, or black fungus, among youngsters in Rajasthan has now become a noteworthy concern. Five children have been afflicted in the previous two months, with one of them dying just two days after being admitted to the hospital. Over 3,000 instances of mucormycosis and 167 fatalities have been documented in Rajasthan in the previous four months
“In the last two months, five cases of mucormycosis in children were reported. In all cases, the children’s immunity was compromised and there were no Covid-19 antibodies,” said Dr Gaurav Gupta, professor, ENT department, Government Medical College, Bikaner.
From August through December last year, there were around 24 instances of mucormycosis recorded. Until the pandemic started in 2020, just one or two instances each year were documented. However, the number of patients is increasing this time, during the second wave, according to a top doctor at SMS Hospital who requested anonymity.
Mucormycosis (black fungus) has been declared an emergency by the state government, with free medical care available.
