At a time when India is struggling with many reports of Black, White and Yellow Fungus cases, a person has now been diagnosed with rare, 'Green Fungus' infection. A 34-year-old man, who recently recovered from Covid-19, has been diagnosed with Green Fungus (Aspergillosis) infection in Madhya Pradesh's Indore.
With 90 percent coronavirus infection in the lungs, the man was admitted to Indore's Aurobindo hospital one and a half month ago. After recovery from the COVID-19, the patient underwent a test as doctors suspected Black Fungus infection. But, during diagnosis, green fungus was detected in his lungs, which is different from Mucormycosis or Black Fungus.
Soon after the diagnosis, the 34-year-old was airlifted through a chartered plane from a private hospital in Indore to Mumbai's Hinduja hospital on Monday for further treatment. The symptoms of Green fungus include nose bleeding and high fever which were observed in the 34-year-old patient after he recovered from COVID-19.
According to the concerned district's health data manager, this is probably the first case of 'Green Fungus' in the country.
