However, the pace of corona infection in the state has slowed down. But in the meantime, the increasing cases of black fungus are increasing the concern. According to the information received, at least 50 people in the state have died due to mucormycosis i.e. black fungus in the last seven days. In such a situation, now the number of deaths due to black fungus has increased from 74 to 128. Doctors claimed that patients with mucormycosis can be saved if they get treatment at an early stage. But people are coming to the hospital only after the symptoms become severe and their health deteriorates, which is increasing the risk.
Patients increased to 1,848
It is noteworthy that in the last seven days, the number of mucormycosis cases in the state has increased from 1,524 to 1,848. Of these, 388 persons had both fungus and covid at the time of hospitalization. At the same time, only mucormycosis was found in 1,134 patients. The mortality rate due to mucormycosis has increased from 5 to 7 percent a week ago. In this regard, ENT specialist Dr Tarun Ojha doctors said that before covid, cases of mucormycosis were sporadic, but now these cases are increasing rapidly. Doctors say that if a patient comes to the hospital early with symptoms, his chances of recovery are quite high, but if someone comes after the condition worsens, his chances of recovery are reduced.
Most patients in Bikaner
