New Delhi: Black Fungus also known as Mucormicosis has started spreading all over Uttar Pradesh. In response, the state government has issued an advisory for those concerned.

Dozens of patients in the state are showing symptoms of the disease every day. 

While in some cases the jaws and eyes of many patients have been removed because of a black fungus infection, there are many more cases of people losing their lives. 

The Yogi government has issued an advisory on black fungus, stating that after COVID-19 infection, the black fungus or mucormycosis spreads to the face, nose, sinus, eye and brain and destroys it. Due to this, a large part of the face including the eye is destroyed and there is a risk of life.

Take a look at some of the key points form the advisory.

Do not start steroid medicine at the behest of yourself or a non-specialist doctor, friend, friend or relative. Steroid medicines like – Dexona, Medrol etc.
