Medical experts working in hospitals in India are getting slammed with COVID-19 patients.

The coronavirus situation in India may have led to an increase in mucormycosis cases.

“We give a lot of high-dose steroids now to people with Covid-19 if they end up in intensive care as the steroids help to treat inflammation, but the steroids unfortunately also suppress your immune system,” Collignon said.

“We’re trying to decrease your inflammation with the steroids but that actually means your ability to fight normal infections, like fungus, is also compromised.”.

There are some states in India reporting cases.

The India Council of Medical Research and the Union Health Ministry are recommending taking care when handling soil and other materials that may contain fungus, according to The Guardian.

They are also encouraging personal hygiene practices and discontinuing immune-suppressing drugs like steroids as soon as possible!
