Covid, diabetes & steroids fuelling new mucormycosis wave
MUMBAI: The “unholy trinity” of Covid-19, diabetes and steroids seems to be fuelling the present outbreak of mucormycosis across the country, but India has for long been the world’s worst hotspot for this black fungal infection.
“Mucormycosis is an uncommon fungal infection although India had the highest reported cases of mucormycosis in the world even before Covid,” said Kolkata-based endocrinologist Dr A K Singh who, along with Dr Shashank Joshi from Mumbai and Dr Anoop Misra from Delhi, published a paper on Friday on the reasons for the mucormycosis “esction” in the country.
加尔各答内分泌学家A K Singh博士说：“霉菌病是一种不常见的真菌感染，尽管在新冠疫情爆发之前，印度的霉菌病报告病例也是全球最高的。”加尔各答内分泌学家A K Singh博士与来自孟买的Shashank Joshi博士和来自德里的Anoop Misra博士在周五发表了一篇论文，阐述了霉菌病在印度“升级”的原因。
According to Dr Joshi, while endocrinologists would see a diabetic patient with mucormycosis once in two months, the Covid-19 pandemic changed that. “Now doctors are seeing multiple cases in a day. This exponential rise is a cause for concern,” said Dr Joshi, a member of the Maharashtra go nment’s task force on Covid-19.
For the article published in the peer-reviewed and indexed medical journal, `Diabetes & Metabolic Syndrome: Clinical Research & Reviews’, the doctors reviewed medical literature until May 12, 2021 and found that the highest in dence was in India—83 out of 101 published cases across the world.
More than two-thirds of these patients had uncontrolled diabetes and two-thirds had received a course of steroid for Covid. These findings suggest control of diabetes and judicious use of steroid is necessary to reduce black fungal infection, they said.
Slowly and steadily we or our generation will become like hybrid seeds required chemical fertilizers, herbicide, insecticide and fungicide with regular intervals . Life will become like zombie.
Chowkidaar has taken country backward by 20 years. Whatever congress achieved all is undone by Chowkidaar.
It's not covid, diabetes and steroids but kumbh mela fuelling new mucormycosis wave .
this is something very fishy. USA,UK etc all had covid,all had steroids and diabetes. still they didn't get mucormycosis on such a large scale. Something we are missing here
EXPOSING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO INFECTION AT KHUBH AND ADDRESSING PACKED RALLIES, OUR FEKU AKA FAKE IS NOW CRYING CROCODILE TEARS ON NATIONAL TELEVISION.HE IS THE FUNGUS !!!
Doctors ,Medical staff and Medico Business Mafias are using OXYGEN SHORTAGE,BLACK FUNGUS, WHITE FUNGUS, STEROID as SHIELD to hide their UNPROFESSIONALISM???
Also, check the industrial oxygen that has been used as medical oxygen...
God is punishing India for ing FEKU.
Contaminated and dirty Oxygen bottles, pipes are the only reason for the fungus.
We and po iticians equally responsible for this mess. People never believed there is covid my own friends used to say it's some conspiracy and refused to wear mask now the same are wearing mask when its already messed up..
Whole world is laughing at India due to failures of Chowkidaar Govt.

WRONG FACTS!Main reason was SPREADING THROUGH OXYGEN CYLINDERS and VENTILATOS hospital used.
Each time different variants are flowing out suddenly. I think this could some sort of Conspiracy. And why this kind of variant only in India!
India, which Modi cms is the pharmacy of the world, is daily loosing thousands of lives for want of medicines...
This is not happening in the neighbouring countries...
Why only in India?...
most of the comments are anti Modi, congress tool kit paid agents are at work...these are real fungus and parasites of India..
India has a distinction of being diabetic capital of the world. No wonder why we see such a humongous increase in black fungus cases although indiscriminate usage of steroids may have been part of the culprit.
very low levels of hygiene are responsible for this .People should also eat nutritious cow meat and soup for recovery
Does this fungus spread from people to people??
Give a chance to Siddha, Ayurveda and Homeopathy.
