Experts hypothesize that a combination of factors linked to COVID is exacerbating the wave.
After the devastating wave of COVID-19, infections of the so-called "black fungus" have increased in India. A rare but devastating infection can damage the eyes and spread to the brain. p>
There are now 31,000 cases, up from an estimated tens to several hundreds last month. Media reports show more than 2,100 deaths, but federal health officials have not released the official death toll. Previous medical studies have estimated that the mortality rate from a fungal infection - a mucous membrane fungus - is about 50%. However, the mortality rate varies depending on the underlying conditions of the patients and which part of the body the mucous cysts attack. Infection can occur in the gastrointestinal tract, fractures of the skin, lungs, and blood. In India, the fungus appears to have roots mainly in the nose and sinuses, where it can spread to the bones of the face, and the eyes and even the brain can quickly become infected after infection, so be aggressive and it may lead to tissue death. If it spreads to the eye, many patients lose their sight permanently, and in some cases, their eyes must be removed completely to prevent the infection from spreading. Mucormists are a ubiquitous group of molds, usually affecting only immunocompromised patients such as diabetics. Soil litter molds love acidic conditions and make patients with diabetic ketoacidosis especially vulnerable—a complication in which the blood becomes acidic.) Factors associated with COVID-19. happening or recovering from COVID-19. A combination of poor health in the midst of a health crisis, large numbers of diabetics in the country - especially uncontrolled diabetes - and an over-reliance on glucocorticoids seem to be contributing to the fungal epidemic. Steroid use can help treat COVID-19, but it may also reduce immune responses and expose people to opportunistic infections such as mucosal disease. The fungal infection specialist describes the condition as a "triple," as Arras previously reported. In recent days, media reports from outside India have reported that children's eyes have been surgically removed due to a fungal infection, local governments have declared an epidemic, black markets are being sold, and mummies have been diagnosed on the black market. p>
