Fifth black fungus case detected in Assam
One more case of mucormycosis or black fungus was detected in Assam, taking the total number of such cases in the state to five, an official said.
''The case was diagnosed by a joint effort of the Department of Medicine, ENT, Microbiology and Ophthalmology,'' he said.
The patient, a 47-year-old male, is undergoing treatment at medical unit 1 of the hospital, Kakati added.
He was admitted at the AMCH on June 15 and is currently in a stable condition, the principal said.
The Assam government declared mucormycosis as a notifiable disease on May 26, making it mandatory for all health facilities to report such cases to the Health Department.
