What is Black Fungus? Symptoms and Treatment

A rare but serious fungal infection, known as mucormycosis and colloquially as ‘Black Fungus’ is being detected relatively frequently among Covid-19 patients in some states. The disease often manifests in the skin and also affects the lungs and the brain. Usually, mucormycetes does not pose a major threat to those with a healthy immune system.

The symptoms include pain and redness around eyes and/or nose, fever, headache, coughing, shortness of breath, bloody vomits, and altered mental status. Warning signs can include toothache, loosening of teeth, blurred or double vision with pain.

Mucormycosis needs to be treated with prescription antifungal medicine. In some cases, it can require surgery; it can lead to eventual loss of the upper jaw and sometimes even an eye.

Q. Sir, what do you think would be the topics about J&K in the meeting?

On 5th August, 2019 a very big change happened for Jammu and Kashmir after 72 years. The meeting will surely involve discussions on post abolition of article 370, how J&K can achieve heights of progress and how people can participate in that through elections and delimitations especially the deprived people in J&K like POK people, Western Pakistani refugees, Kashmiri displaced, Gujjars, Bakarwals and Pahadis .

We’ll also talk about the agendas of specific political parties since 72 years which are against the will of J&K public. If they keep extending these topics, they’ll get nothing in return.

Q. Mehbooba Mufti told to talk to Pakistan even when few days back a 25 year old was killed by terrorists. Why this sympathy for terrorism?

This is Jammu’s misfortune that this agenda kept on going for years in the region and did nothing for the public of Jammu as well as Kashmir except handing over guns to the youth. The youngsters now want to work, they want good education and employment but still some parties with the same agenda are destroying everything.

Q. Very few leaders from Jammu have been called for the meeting and some like Choudhary Lal Singh have shown resentment about that. Do you think Jammu’s voice will be raised?

Jammu has a population of around 1.3 crore and every person thinks he’s better than the other. But everyone cannot be called for the meeting. BJP has always raised it’s voice for Jammu region and Nationalist Forces and it will continue doing that. All of us have seen a demo on 5th August. See people attending the meeting will be the ones who will represent National thinking and others will come with same old agendas. So, the meeting will have good and mature discussions.

Q. Lot of talks about Jammu becoming a separate state. Your views on that?

At this moment I feel we need to think how post 5th August we have to do the consolidation, make popular Government, walk towards delimitation and end the imbalance prevailing right now. Rest, everyone has different opinions and different agendas. These things keep going and are discussed in democracy.
