Mucormycosis is known as a black fungus. It has been highly reported in Delhi and Gujarat Covid-19 patients. The number of such cases has been increased exponentially in coronavirus-infected patients. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)T source, the black fungus is caused by a group of molds known as mucormycetes that typically live in soil and decaying organic matter.
This infection has a mortality rate between 46-96 percent and quite life-threatening depending on severity. Dr. K.C. Rondello, epidemiologist and special adviser to the Office of University Health and Wellness at Adelphi University, told Healthline that “Mucormycosis is a rare, invasive, fungal opportunistic infection that causes serious, sometimes fatal disease.”
Rondello also said that this disease is high risk for mucormycosis who has compromised immune systems making them susceptible to fungal and other opportunistic infections. Additionally, he added to his words that “This includes individuals who are currently fighting or have recently recovered from COVID-19 disease.”
Importantly, Covid-19 patients must boost their immunity. For more details, keep visiting this website!
