Bengaluru: Two people have been suspected of dying due to Black Fungus in Karnataka.

Both the deaths – a 45-year-old police constable and a college professor – occurred at Kalburagi.

12 people in Bidar are also suspected to be infected from the fungus with one of them being in critical condition.

Physicians have also confirmed infections from the fungus in 6-7 people who had come for an eye examination at a private eye hospital here. The health department, however, is yet to confirm this.

Additionally, a man in Sankeshwara in Hukkeri taluk is also suspected to be infected from black fungus.

AIIMS chief Randeep Guleria has stated that the black fungus infection occurs due to overuse of steroids and is more common in people with diabetes.
