India is now struggling to deal with not one but two deadly diseases as black fungus infections continue to spread through its hospitals.
Two states in India
Two states in India have declared the black fungus an epidemic, which means all cases of black fungus must be logged and reported to the government.
Black fungus is a life-threatening infection that has a 50% mortality rate and requires all infected tissues to be removed for patients to stand a fighting chance. This has resulted in some patients losing an eye or part of their nose.
