Mucormycosis, or Black Fungus/White Fungus, is a type of fungus that is causing complications in the conditions of recovered Covid patients.
This type of fungus can be found everywhere and thrives on dead plants & animals and helps convert them into soil. Ordinarily, the skin lining in our nose prevents the Black Fungus/White Fungus from planting seeds in our body. It is usually a harmless sort of fungus that our immune system deals with on a daily basis.
Consequence of Mucormycosis Infection After Covid
Our immune system is highly compromised and worn out after the long fight against the Coronavirus. This makes it unable to defend the body from a Mucormycosis invasion. The Fungus infiltrates through the nasal pathway and blocks the blood supply, thereby isolating these parts. It then feeds off of these devitalyzed parts before making further progress inwards.
The Mucormycosis targets the upper jaw bone, teeth and then the eyes before setting sights on the brain. The fungus continues to feed on the vital organs of the body this way if it’s not stopped. This invasion can be fatal if not treated right away. Consult a doctor immediately upon detection of first symptoms.

Treatment Of Mucormycosis
A possible infestation of the Black Fungus/White Fungus should not be taken lightly. You should rush to the nearest specialist upon detection of any symptoms. The faster you act, the quicker and more painless the recovery will be.
This virus has a fatality rate of 20% and it may be treated in 15-20 days upon early detection. The Black Fungus/White Fungus treatment depends on the severity of infection spread inside the body. It often requires a surgical procedure to be accompanied by the medication. It may also involve surgical removal of infected body parts, such as the upper jaw or eyes.
The treatment is only considered successful when the last bit of the virus is removed to ensure zero possibility of a reinvasion.
