So far 20,700 injections have been sent to medical colleges-government hospitals in the state
The number of patients in Gujarat is increasing day by day due to the disease of mucormycosis or black fungus. The injection arrived late Sunday evening at a time when there is a shortage of injection of mucosal mycosis.
Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has said that injections of mucormycosis will be allotted to general hospitals, municipal corporation-run hospitals as a matter of urgency.
Mentioning that the state government has taken precautionary measures to avoid shortage of injections to the patients with black fungus, Rupani said that sufficient amount of amphotericin-B injection would be made available by the Gujarat government.
Patients admitted to private hospitals will also be given injections as per the guidelines of the health department. The Chief Minister has expressed the hope that Gujarat, like Corona, will succeed against mucormycosis.
Separate wards have been started in government hospitals for patients in Gujarat at a time when the incidence of mucormycosis has increased across the country. It is being treated in private hospitals.
As the number of injections required for the treatment of the disease has been declining across the country, so far 20,700 amphetamine-B injections have been sent to medical colleges, general hospitals and municipal corporation-run hospitals in the state.
