Coronavirus outbreaks in India have been on the rise which not only comes with millions of death but many other side effects. Doctors claim that white fungus that recently noticed in India is one of them. However, doctors have claimed that the white fungus is a new form of black fungus that is already identified.
Coronavirus outbreaks have been rampant in India for the past few months. The death toll has risen sharply and so has the number of infected people. Although no research has been done on white fungus so far, experts say it is a deadly disease of black fungus. It can quickly infect a person’s sinuses, brain and lungs.
Experts say that these white fungus are a type of mucormycosis caused by a group of moulds known as micromycetes. This fungus usually grows on rotten vegetables and fruits of mature plants. People are usually less resistant to this fungus. People who suffer from coronavirus, especially those with diabetes, are at higher risk of developing white fungus. Many of those who have already recovered from Covid 19 have suffered from white fungus. However, experts say that taking very high doses of steroids is one of the reasons. Recently some patients in Bihar who have not been found to be affected by corona positive have also been infected with white fungus.
