Bengaluru: Health & Medical Education Minister Dr. K. Sudhakar said more than 300 black fungus cases have been reported in the state and all district hospitals have been prepared for treatment

Speaking to the reporters, he said, “Primary investigation report has revealed more than 300 cases in the state. I have personally discussed with Union Minister DV Sadananda Gowda. Apart from district hospitals all 17 govt medical colleges have been prepared for the treatment of Black fungus. Centre has allocated 1,150 vials of Amphotericin B. We have already requested to provide 20,000 vials.”

He further said, “Earlier, 200-300 people in a year suffered from this in the entire country, now more than 300 people have been infected in our state which is why there is a shortage of medicine. There is an increase in the manufacturing of the medicine. 1,150 vials of medicine have been received in the state and we are expecting 1000 vials more in a day or two.”

“Also, a committee has been constituted to find the cause of this infection. It is being said that contaminated water used in the humidifier, excessive use of steroids, unsterilized medical equipment, prolonged use of same mask, tube, beds etc are the primary source of this infection. The report further states that  the renovation work in Covid hospitals must be stopped and outsiders should not be allowed into ICU wards. ENT check up has to be carried out after recovering from Covid  on 3rd, 7th and 21st day,” he added.
