Black fungus: Life taking diseases

Black fungus is scientifically known as Mucormycosis. It (also known as zygomycosis) is a severe but uncommon fungus caused by a group of molds known as mucormycetes. Mucormycosis is contracted by coming into contact with fungal spores in the atmosphere. After inhaling spores, the infection may manifest itself in the lungs or sinuses. These types of mucormycosis are most common in people who have health issues. It also affects the people who take medications that reduce the body’s ability to combat germs and illness. The fungus can also enter the skin through a cut, scrape, burn, or another form of skin trauma. And it may grow on the skin.
