A rare and serious fungal infection is seen on the rise in patients who have recovered from COVID & the experienced team of Doctors at MAA E.N.T. Hospitals led by industry stalwart Dr. K. R. Meghanadh are working round-the-clock to treat those affected patients effectively.
With the high number of cases from the pandemic, healthcare professionals & patients alike are experiencing the increasing effects of a rare fungal infection - Mucormycosis or Black Fungus / White Fungus.
As there is a rising concern in the Telugu states regarding the same, it is highly advocated to take necessary precautions to fight back. Studies suggest that early identification of symptoms can be a great help and make it a 'curable' or ‘treatable’ infection.
Major reasons for the spread of black fungus/white fungus or Mucormycosis could be:
Dr. K.R. Meghanadh & his team of E.N.T. Specialists at MAA E.N.T. have treated more than 200 COVID-recovered patients suffering from these infections in the past one year and urge everyone to follow necessary mandated precautions for their health and safety.
Fungal spores, naturally present in the air, entering one’s system during breathing
