Mangaluru: The Black Fungus disease has now also hit coastal Karnataka.

The Black Fungus disease has been declared as a notified disease by the State government. In Dakshina Kannada district Wenlock Hospital has been designated as the treatment centre for the disease.

“People of the district need not worry about this disease and continue to follow COVID-19 guidelines. Importantly, those in home isolation and those who have recovered from the virus must check for symptoms such as facial pain, irritable nasal secretion, nasal stiffness and eye symptoms (eye oedema, eye irritation, any visual impairment). If you note any of these symptoms then contact the nearest health centre immediately,” said Deputy Commissioner Dr Rajendra KV.
