India reports nearly 9,000 rare cases of infection

India has reported more than 8,800 cases of the deadly “black fungus,” a growing epidemic.

Usually, a rare infection, called muscle disease, has a mortality rate of 50%, some of which can only be preserved by removing the eyes.

But in recent months India has seen thousands of cases affecting rehabilitation of COVID-19 patients.

Doctors say there is a link to steroid treatment at COVID-19. Diabetics are at particular risk.

More than half of all reported cases have been reported in the western states of Gujarat and Maharashtra. At least 15 other states have reported between 8 and 900 cases. As cases increased, 29 Indian states were told to declare the disease an epidemic.

Doctors say new wards to treat patients with the disease are rapidly filling up across the country.

In the central Indian city of Indore, the 1,100-bed Maharaja Yeshwantrao hospital saw the number of patients rise from eight weeks ago to 185 on Saturday night.

In the central Indian city of Indore, the 1,100-bed Maharaja Yeshwantrao hospital saw the number of patients rise from eight weeks ago to 185 on Saturday night.

The hospital had 11 rooms and 200 beds to treat patients with black fungus: “The patient’s increase was completely unexpected,” Dr. Pandey said, noting; “We saw one or two cases last year.

Estimates of at least 400 people in Indore alone have the disease.

“Black fungal infections are now more challenging than Covid-19. If patients do not receive timely and appropriate treatment, the mortality rate may be as high as 94%. “Treatment is expensive and pharmaceutical supplies are scarce.”

What is Caucasian disease?

Mucosal disease is a very rare infection. It is caused by exposure to Caucasian membrane mold, commonly found in soil, plants, feces and rotten fruits and vegetables. “Everywhere, on the ground and in the air, even in the noses and mucus of healthy people,” says Dr. Akshay Nair, a Mumbai ophthalmologist.

It affects the sinuses, brains and lungs and can be life-threatening in people with diabetes or severe immune disorders such as cancer or HIV/AIDS.
