New Delhi. Corona virus (Covid-1) infection has caused disasters around the world. There is no hard medicine other than the vaccine to fight corona. Therefore, scientists around the world are constantly researching for better treatment of patients. In this episode, a recent study is conducted by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). Accordingly, due to excessive use of antimicrobials, corona patients have an increased risk of fungal infections.

Difficulty using too much
According to the ICMR, excessive use of antimicrobials leads to the formation of germs, i.e. bacteria and fungi are born which in turn lead to fungal infections. Usually these infections do not go away quickly after taking the drug. This is called anti-microbial resistance in the language of science. This pathogen causes pneumonia and urinary tract infections in patients. The report also expressed concern that the risk of fungal infections due to corona is also increasing.
Where did the information come from?
The report was compiled after collecting data from 300 centers in Delhi. This report also describes how to treat a new pathogen. “We also have pathogens like Acinetobacter Baumanni and Klebsiella pneumoniae, which are boosting drug resistance,” Dr Kam Kamini Walia, a scientist in the Department of Epidemiology and Communicable Diseases at ICMR, told the Hindustan Times.
