Bangladesh finds two black fungus cases

Bangladesh has reported two cases of black fungus or mucormycosis in patients who have recovered from Covid-19.

They were detected at Birdem Hospital in the capital on May 8 and on May 23, hospital sources said.

Mucormycosis or black fungus is a fungal infection, which is rare but can be fatal. In 50 percent of the cases, this fungal infection causes death.

A patient suffering from the black fungus can be saved only by removing the bone around the eyes or jaw.
