Research on black fungus by doctors at Maharani Laxmibai Medical College, Jhansi, has shown that steroids and high sugar, as well as the indiscriminate use of antibiotics, are also responsible.

Doctors at Maharani Laxmibai Medical College in Jhansi have started researching the black mushroom. In the initial phase of the study on 20 patients, it was found that the indiscriminate intake of antibiotics together with steroids and high sugar content is also responsible for the black fungus. Doctors say that taking many antibiotics kills the normal commensal bacteria in the nose and mouth, which allows black fungus to thrive. In the midst of the corona epidemic, the black fungus has started to wreak havoc. In the past two weeks, around 50 cases of this disease have come to the fore in Jhansi.

Now the doctors at the medical school have started researching the black fungus. More than 20 patients were examined. Dr. Anshul Jain, assistant director of the medical college and professor of the department of anesthesia, said Mucor and Rhizopas are the two main types that cause Mucor mycoses.

Both are ubiquitous and humans come into contact with microscopic fungal spores on a daily basis. It is therefore likely impossible to completely avoid exposure to Mucormycetes. However, they are not harmful to humans unless immunity is weak. If the immune system is weakened, inhaling the fungus spores can lead to an infection of the lungs or sinuses that spreads to other parts of the body.

According to Dr. Anshul, the irrational use of steroids in COVID is responsible for the weakening of immunity, and the indiscriminate use of antibiotics disrupts the normal bacterial flora of the nose and mouth, which act as a defense against opportunistic fungal infections. As a result, this infection, which lives everywhere in the environment, enters the human body through the nose. He said the full results of the research will be announced in a week.

conduct such an investigation
Dr. Anshul said that nasal swabs from patients with black fungus will also be taken for bacterial culture, and a test will be made to see if the bacterial flora (group of bacteria) from these patients is similar to that of other people. He said that there are many types of bacteria living in the nose that prevent harmful bacteria and fungi from growing.

denied these claims
The deputy school principal has dismissed claims about black fungus growth due to using industrial oxygen or wearing a specific company’s mask. He said that these reasons do not cause this disease.
