The swirling crisis is stretching the health care system in India beyond the breaking point. Lack of beds, oxygen and medical staff. Some Cubid patients die in waiting rooms or outside stunned clinics, before they are even seen by a doctor.

The infection is most commonly seen in diabetics or those with a suppressed immune system, affecting the “sinuses or lungs after inhaling fungal spores from the air,” according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) information sheet.
“When it merges with the situation with Cubid 19, you have to keep in mind that there are two more elements that come into the picture,” said Dr. VK Paul, a member of Niti Aayog, a government-led think tank. Immune – We use life-saving drugs, steroids, ”
“Besides, when a cobid patient is given oxygen, there is a humidifier that has water in it, and the tendency to get the fungal infection increases,” he added.
