The White Fungus, a complete new threat

The White Fungus

India is now under the danger of the White fungus. The COVID had already taken off all the happiness from the people’s minds when the Mucormycosis or the black fungus arrived and terrified the entire population. Now the white fungus has been recently reported and is predicted to affect people in a new way. Surely, people now are clueless and are worried about the remaining days of their lives. The common person is worried that he has lost his job, the farmers are worried because they are not getting proper profits to raise their children, and amidst all these, everybody is planning to save some money in case the diseases hit one after the other. Surely, this is a huge crisis of economy, health, and funds.

Expert views:

Four cases of the white fungus have been reported in Patna, Bihar. Experts have said that this fungus is deadlier than the white fungus and can cause more damage. These fungi have the capability of infecting the lungs in just a similar way to the coronavirus. The black fungus mostly injected the eyes and the nose or other parts, but the white fungus can cause havoc damage to the lungs, nails, skin, stomach, kidney, brain, private parts, and mouth. Thus this needs to be controlled before it takes up the form of an epidemic.

What needs to be done:

The only thing in our hands is maintaining proper hygiene. Thus, we need to make sure that we are living in a clean surrounding. Also, the maintenance of the COVID guidelines is a must. All the safety protocols need to be taken care of. Also, in case of any difference in health conditions, getting professional advice from the nearby practicing physician is a must. The early symptoms should not be neglected, and even the slightest change should be recorded and treated before it gets worse.
