In Patna, no cases of white fungal infections in Covid patients have been reported, but white fungi that reach the lungs (Candida and Aspergillus) can pose new challenges.
Dr. SN Singh, director of microbiology at Patna Medical College and Hospital, said the presence of Candida was detected in the lungs of four patients, including two who recovered from Covid.
According to experts, a hot and humid environment, diabetic conditions, and long-term oxygen support were the main causes of black and white fungal infections.
