The black fungus infection, also known as mucormycosis, is still dangerous in the state. The patients of this infection face multiple sense organ issues and require dentists, ENT's, and eye specialists to cure this infection.
With this said, medical facilities and each patient's need to be monitored by an expert in eye, nose, or teeth is complex. The screening of patients and consultation of possible patients of the fungal infection will also happen in three mosques, Masjid Ishaq at NS Kunta, Masjid Muhammed Mustafa at Rajendranagar and Masjid Omar-e-Shifa at Shaheenanagr. These centre are not just for screening, but they also provide covid and black fungal awareness along with helping people with online and telephonic counselling and diagnosis facility to those who cannot travel to visit the clinic.
These drives in mosques are equipped with dental chairs, and ophthalmologists and other health experts are fully available to screen 5000 people in a day. The drive is sponsored by the NGO Helping hand foundation, lending all its support to conduct covid and mucormycosis screening and provide medication. The drive will recommend all critical patient's to a hospital treating the fungus and constantly monitor them until they are fit and fine.
The initiatives of mosques have been impressive during the pandemic to provide treatment to everyone outside their community. This is a great way to reduce the gap that still exists based on religion, and many people are denied treatment based on the same.
