Indian Covid patients are hurt by this new enemy
BBC just dropped some news about Indian Covid patients who are being hurt by this new hidden enemy.
A new article posted by BBC notes that just the other day, Dr Akshay Nair, a Mumbai-based eye surgeon, was waiting to operate on a 25-year-old woman who had recovered from Covid-19 three weeks ago.
BBC notes that inside the surgery, an ear, nose and throat specialist was already at work on the patient who was a diabetic.
“He had inserted a tube in her nose and was removing tissues infected with mucormycosis, a rare but dangerous fungal infection. This aggressive infection affects the nose, eye and sometimes the brain,” the notes revealed.
The same article noted that after his colleague finished, Dr Nair would carry out a three-hour procedure to remove the patient’s eye.
“I will be removing her eye to save her life. That’s how this disease works,” Dr Nair told me.
Just in case you don’t know, there’s a deadly second wave of Covid-19 that ravages India, and doctors are now reporting a rash of cases involving a rare infection – also called the “black fungus” – this is happening among recovering and recovered Covid-19 patients
