We already fighting with coivd-19 ,now we have to contend with another infection called ‘Black fungus’ .Now in India most of covid patients infected by this. So, now we need to consider this infection like covid. Before learn about black-fungus, need to know “what is a fungus?”.
What is fungus?
These are organisms separate from the plants and animal kingdoms. They are in nature and are found in the soil, plants, decaying organic matter, water, air, damp places, and also in humans and animals. They play a very important role in our ecosystem. There are about 1,44,000 species of fungi out of which some of them are pathogenic to humans.
Generally, some types of fungus don’t cause any infections in humans and humans use fungus in their food also(e.g.:- East) but some can cause sickness in people with weakened immune systems known as opportunistic infections.
Some common types of a fungal infection include:
1.Skin infections like ringworm
3.Deeper cutaneous infections following trauma,
4.Breach in the skin with subsequent fungal implantation and growth
5.Sinus infections and deep lung infections
6.The fungi can also affect the gastrointestinal system, renal systems and can cause a full-blown infection resulting from the entry of fungus into the bloodstream.
What is Black fungus infection?
Mucormycosis is a serious but rare fungal infection caused by a group of molds known as micromycetes. There are a few subgroups like Rhizopus, Mucor, which are most commonly involved in this infection. These fungi are angioinvasive . These molds live throughout the environment and their spores are present in the air. They get lodged in the nasal cavity and adjoining sinuses.
They grow in the nasal cavity they relentlessly destroy the surrounding host tissue. The bones in the nasal cavity and sinuses are destroyed.
These include :-
2. the orbital bones
3. skull base bones.
Black masses may be seen in the nasal cavity and oral cavity.
If it destroys the orbit and enters the eye socket it may cause bulging of the
1.eyes, pain, frozen eye movements, and blindness.
2.When it enters the cranial cavity by breaching the skull base it blocks major arteries and venous lakes resulting in brain strokes and bleeds.
In Gujarat 13 year small child also infected by this. There is Mistry why covid-19 patients seriously infected by these 2 type fungus.
Now there are bulk of cases were reported in India in various states. Normally black fungus lives in wet places. When it enters in to our body its mainly effect our lungs,heart,brain,throats.
The main symptom is black liquid come from nose.Heavy headache and if it extrema condition death also happen.
The happiest news is black fungas tratements are available in th world.But the vaccines are very rare for that.Bcz, These dissesase are very rare in the world.Approximately for one year one or two cases only found in all over the world.
Now Indian government high court request to do production of these fungus vaccine and also going to import these vaccine from the world.
Why covid patient mainly targeted by Black FUNGUS?
When covid infected to a person ,that person immunity level reduces .So black fungus easily targeted to human. Then attack to brain,heart ,heart,throat,and lunges.Final in sevior condition creates death…
So finally one and only solution is improve your immunsystem.
