The government has told doctors to look out for signs of mucormycosis or “black fungus” in COVID-19 patients as hospitals report a rise in cases of the rare but potentially fatal infection.
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said at the weekend that doctors treating COVID-19 patients, diabetics and those with compromised immune systems should watch for early symptoms including sinus pain or nasal blockage on one side of the face, one-sided headache, swelling or numbness, toothache and loosening of teeth.
Maharashtra – the state where COVID-19 took the maximum toll – is considering looking at the possibility of importing vaccines directly for the use of citizens in Mumbai, state minister Aaditya Thackeray told NDTV today.
If that happens, they have a “roadmap” to vaccinate the country’s financial capital in around three weeks. The cost, he said, is “not a factor” and the state government is looking at “procurement at the earliest”.
