MUMBAI: Coronavirus infection is on the rise across the country, but in the meantime, the incidence of cochlea-19 patients and those who have recovered from an epidemic is increasing. The government has issued a number of important pieces of information regarding black fungus.
What is Mucormycosis?
Mucormicosis (black fungus or black fungus) is an extremely rare infection. It is caused by a black fungus that commonly grows in soil, plants, manure, rotten fruits and vegetables. According to NKTI Commission member VK Paul, most of the patients in Covid-19 have now been diagnosed with fungal infections. Infection with this fungus is called black fungus. This fungus is often on a wet surface.
What are the symptoms of black fungus?
According to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), myceramycosis is a black fungus that can be identified by its symptoms. These include nasal congestion, pain and redness around the nose and eyes, fever, headache, cough, shortness of breath, vomiting of blood, mental health and confusion.
How can there be a black fungal infection?
The highest risk of Black Fungus may be in patients with diabetes and people with high blood pressure. In addition, steroid use can lead to a weakened immune system, prolonged stay in the ICU, suffering from a serious illness, and infection with voriconazole therapy.
Corona patients should take care of these things
According to the ICMR, people who have recovered from the corona virus need to control hyperglycemia. In addition, patients with diabetes need to have their blood glucose levels checked regularly. When taking steroids, keep in mind the right time, the right dose and duration. Use clean water during oxygen therapy. Care must also be taken if the patient is using antibiotics and antifungals.
Patients should not do this by mistake
According to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), do not take any symptoms of black fungus lightly. Do not consider nasal congestion as bacterial sinusitis after covid treatment and check immediately if necessary symptoms appear. Don’t try to cure your own myocardial infarction and don’t waste your time in it.
Corona patients should take this precaution
According to the ICMR, special care should be taken for people infected or cured with a corona. Corona patients take special care of hygiene and take daily baths. Also, when working in gardening or soil, wear masks, wear shoes, cover your hands and feet, and wear gloves.
