India Battles Deadly Fungus as Virus Deaths Pass 300,000

Q8k=IHWZ(]U|-qh,TCU=

Doctors in India are fighting a fungus that is infecting COVID-19 patients and those who have recovered from the new coronavirus.

Bk4YYLwG.pc8K8P9

The dangerous infection, called mucormycosis, is rare. But doctors say its sudden increase could make India's fight against COVID-19 even more difficult.

v|W6+QwbP7Oq3e@nhG

India has reported almost 27 million cases of the coronavirus since the pandemic began. Almost half of that number has been recorded in the past two months.

@_I@iU)@@F

The Health Ministry on Monday reported 4,454 new deaths in the last 24 hours. That brings India's total to over 303,720. India also reported 240,842 new infections Monday.

M[(o|!=s+LzH]CVUZ_g

India's vaccination drive has also slowed recently. Many states say they do not have enough vaccines. India is the world's largest vaccine-producing country. But it has fully vaccinated just 3.8 percent of its almost 1.4 billion people.

Experts say new infections in India may finally be slowing. But there are some early signs that mucormycosis, also known as "black fungus," is becoming a serious concern.

By9!]z~kJJ9L+&BNG0iK

Mucormycosis is caused by exposure to the mucor mold, which is found in soil, air and even in the nose of humans. It spreads through the lungs and damages the face. Sometimes, doctors have to remove an eye to prevent the infection from reaching the brain.

z4#H,NpSqo0Yx[Q&R

On Saturday, federal minister Sadananda Gowda said nearly 9,000 cases had been reported in India. The quick rise has led to a shortage of Amphotericin B, the drug used to treat the condition. Local media have said more than 250 have died from infections.

Mucormycosis infections can cause death at a high rate. The fungus was present in India before the pandemic. It is not contagious, but the high number of cases in the last month has surprised and worried doctors.

L;IVW=Ms@kie

Ambrish Mithal is a doctor with Max Healthcare, a private group of hospitals in India.

"It is a new challenge and things are looking bleak," he said.

Mithal said black fungus often infects patients with weakened defense against infection and existing health conditions, especially diabetes. High and unnecessary usage of steroid drugs can also lead to infection.

"Earlier I used to come across just a few cases every year but the current infection rate is frightening," Mithal said.

JOt;iD36f5C

India's large cities have seen signs of improvement in recent days. But the virus has hit the country's rural areas where most Indians live and where health care is limited. Now heath experts are worried that common medications, including steroids, are increasing the infection rate of mucormycosis.

#%M)-*ejKUV)hZF9

SK Pandey is a medical officer at a hospital in Uttar Pradesh state. He said inexperienced doctors were giving steroids to patients in rural areas without considering all the possibilities.

"This has led to increase in black fungus cases in smaller cities where the patient has not even been hospitalized," he said.

@]6E~njlwdURRX

India's Health Ministry on Thursday asked states to follow the spread of the condition and declared it an epidemic. All medical centers must report the cases to a federal network.

9,vMpTa9KCV4S

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday called the disease a "new challenge."
