Govt has allocated 1,21,000 additional vials of Amphotericin-B to states, UTs, central institutions: minister | THP India News

NEW DELHI: The government allocated additional 1,21,000 vials of Amphotericin-B to various states, Union Territories (UTs) and central institutions on Friday, according to Union minister Sadananda Gowda.
Amphotericin-B is used to treat mucormycosis, also known as black fungus infection.
“Additional 1,21,000 vials of #Amphotericin-B have been allocated to all the States/UTs and Central Institutions today,” the Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers said in a tweet.
Mucormycosis affects the sinuses, brain and lungs, and can be life-threatening in diabetic or severely immuno-compromised individuals such as cancer patients or people with HIV/AIDS.
The doctors in India are documenting an alarming number of cases of mucormycosis among patients with Covid and those who have recently recovered.
