The Fungal Epidemic – What You Should Know

The Fungal Epidemic – What You Should Know

Since the onset of the second wave, many states have declared lockdown to help prevent the further spread of Covid however, as the peak seems to subside another epidemic has started ravaging India. Mucormycotic, colloquially known as black fungus has seen a significant rise in the second wave unlike the first and has been declared an epidemic in many states across India. As of 25th May 2021, about 11,700 cases of black fungus have been reported.[1] Amidst this dread, reports of white fungus started surfacing followed by reports of yellow fungus which has instilled confusion and panic amongst the general public about these infections.

First things first, these fungal infections are caused by Mucoromycetes, a group of molds belonging to the scientific order Morales and aren’t contagious in most cases. The colloquial names of these infections (i.e. Black, White and Yellow) come from their symptoms and the type of infection they cause in the body:

1. Black Fungus is the infection where mucoromycetes infest the sinuses and bones of the face and invade the brain or cause patients to lose an eye. The symptoms may range from pain on the side of face, toothache to discoloration of nose.
2. White fungus has fewer reported cases but is more lethal because mucoromycetes damage vital organs such as the brain, the digestive system, respiratory organs, kidneys and even private parts.[5] The symptoms are similar to Covid-19 and range from breathlessness to chest pain, headaches and even swelling.
3. Yellow fungus is also an infection caused by Mucoromycetes, however it usually affects reptiles and has come out as an unprecedented and opportunist infection in humans. Micro septic’s is difficult to diagnose as its effects are more internal and not visible. Common symptoms include lethargy, weight loss and lack of appetite which becomes severe as sunken eyes, pus leakage, slow healing of wounds, organ failure and necrosis (tissue death)

The intravenous antifungal drug, Amphotericin B is used for the treatment of fatal fungal infections.

Mucoromycetes are found throughout the environment, from soil to any decaying matter. Most people are exposed to it daily and under normal circumstances, the chances of getting a fungal infection are extremely rare. People who are at risk of infection are those that have weakened immune systems or are on immunosuppressants (such as corticosteroids). Diabetes mellitus is the most common risk factor, followed by blood cancer and solid-organ transplant. Other emerging risk factors are pulmonary tuberculosis, chronic kidney disease, critically ill patients and trauma (serious injuries).[8] Since fungi require damp environment to grow, preventive measures are keeping rooms well ventilated, clean and dry. Clothes and masks should be cleaned and changed regularly as well. Proper disposal of organic waste can also help prevent infections.

Coronavirus Vaccine: Is Covishield better than Coaxing or vice versa?

Coronavirus Vaccine: Is Covishield better than Coaxing or vice versa?

Since the vaccine dose was approved for the coronavirus it all gave a huge sense of relief to all. The government has issued an effective plan for running a vaccination campaign in all rural and urban areas of Indian.
As per the plan, the process of giving vaccination will start with healthcare workers, first responders, and essential leaders in the government. Next will come to higher risk, including the elders.

And finally, it will come to the population at large. The plan has a special concern for the poor and homeless community and people with an underlying condition that could make them more vulnerable.

Following the same here are some points, you must learn about Coronavirus Vaccine:-

Talking about the difference between both Coaxing & Covishield is that both were developed similarly. The only major difference is that Covishield has passed through all 3 stages of testing & Coaxing, which was developed by Bharat Biotech is still in the last stage of study.

Both of the vaccines work to build up the antibody count in the body. This will help in alerting the body to unleash protective defense whenever a further attack is suspected.

Side-effect of Coaxing

Hyderabad based Bharat Biotech is the face for discovering Coaxing, also known as an inactive version of the virus. According to fact sheet declared by the company specifies that a list of mild symptoms are what expected once one had Covaxin.
Some of the side-effects that have been noticed are includes low grade temperature, vomiting, headache, redness in arm, fatigue, weakness and pain at injection site.
But no extreme or rigid affect has been noticed so far. Also, Biotech has confirmed that there is a very less chance of developing unusual reaction like difficulty in breathing, swelling, extreme rashes etc.

Side-effect of Covishield:

Covishield was introduced in India via the Oxford-Astrazeneca vaccine and was one of the first competitors in the race. It’s also the one that has been largely considered a safe vaccine to use.

But that doesn’t mean that there’s no anti symptoms to it. As far as now there’s a list of symptoms that has been noticed and highlighted by company itself. And, the list of symptoms includes nausea, lumps, fatigue, brushing, fever, itching, malaise, muscle ache.
But severe side-effects such as high temperature, nervous problem, coughing, anaphylaxis are rare but possible symptoms.

Although most of the side-effects are treatable including the serious ones, if the person will get medical help on time. However milder symptoms are curable at home and it’s just a matter of 3 to 4 days and do not required much attention.

With this it’s time to wrap up over the discussion of Coaxing and Covishield. But we will come up with more of interesting information on COVID-19 and Vaccination. Till then Stay safe & Get vaccinated

5 Ways to stay safe from COVID-19

5 Ways to stay safe from COVID-19

So far so long too much has been said and assumed about the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe but unfortunately, countries are failing to figure out how we can end this spreadable disease. As some of the offices and business are re-open and people opt to leave their homes hence it becomes very crucial for all of us to take proper precautionary measures.
With COVID-19 cases still a reality, it becomes very important to remember the basic principles that we can take to halt the community spread of the pandemic.

Here are the best five ways to stay safe from COVID-19 :

Wear a double facemask :

Since COVID-19 has happened the very first urge that has come from the team of experts and WHO is to wear a mask. Wearing a face mask when you leave your home is a form of social responsibility too. By doing so you won’t only protect yourself but also help others – by not becoming a virus carrier.

Maintain Social Distancing

Wearing a mask is one step but another major way through which we can reduce the effect of the coronavirus is by maintaining 6-feet of distance from all. For our communities with strong family ties it’s very much understood that’s it’s quite difficult but we have to find ways to deal with it. Avoid going to crowded areas, shopping malls, and restaurants.

As the second wave of the coronavirus has affected many lives hence we need to understand that that restricting our outside movement is the only way to defeat this virus. Also, unnecessarily going outside may inadvertently expose you to the virus that causes COVID-19. And, because everyone’s risk is different, we need to maintain physical distance at all times and look after each other.

Wash your hands frequently

Wearing gloves is a false kind of security especially in such a scenario when you don’t know how and when you accidentally expose yourself to this virus. To avoid all such situations better go and wash your hands frequently.

And as per the latest medicated record – all must wash their hands with best-medicated soap followed by rubbing it for and around 50 to 60 seconds.
Also, wearing gloves could be a good option but for situations like when you are out for grocery shopping or visiting the hospital for some reason, etc.

If you must, gather outside

While staying at home is still highly recommended, if you’re going to be a part of a gathering, do it outside. The corona cases are on peak – so avoid all sorts of gathering but still, if you do it then doing it outside is highly recommended. While still maintaining distance and wearing a face covering.

Don’t share your food or drinks

Tho we all have practiced sharing is caring but avoid doing it till the time we won’t get rid of this havoc virus. Whether you are having a meal at home or in a restaurant or have joined a get-together avoid sharing your meal or drinks with anyone or everyone as it’s the best way of avoiding cross-contamination. Contagious saliva droplets from an ill person or person carrying the virus unknowingly, can land onto food or drinks or even on utensils. Therefore everyone should bring their food and drink.

That’s all, we all need to understand that this virus is still around us and hasn’t gone anywhere not even partially. Hence we need to take care of ourselves and on our own by following all these COVID-19 safety protocols. With this, we hope that soon we will defeat this virus and will demolish it successfully from planet earth. Till then stay safe and don’t go out until it’s very much required

Cancer is the modern-day plague – Let’s face it & kick it out from our space

You would agree that the global population is increasing and the world is aging. Now the latest cancer report released by the ICMR and NCDIR, Bengaluru confirms the sharp increase in India’s cancer cases, estimating that it could further increase by 12% in the next five years.

In India, the 6 most common cancer types were breast cancer, oral cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer, and colorectal cancer.
Breast Cancer & Cervical Cancer is rapidly rising amongst women in urban areas where Cervical Cancer is the second most common cancer in India.

Oral and Lung cancers are highest among men and women in both urban and rural areas.

Therefore, making people aware of eating healthy, or living a healthy lifestyle, avoiding tobacco, etc is not only important but also a societal need.

To make people aware of its hazardous impact government has launched various health care schemes and is doing so many Cancer Awareness Campaigns too. The outcome of these campaigns is kind of wonderful in delivering the right amount of information as it’s important to remove the stigma and fear attached to it.

It is also vital to follow a healthy lifestyle, and sharing survivor stories gives a message of hope and confidence. All this in one frame helps the sufferer to deal with the current situation, hence it’s important to come out and talk about it. those who have suffered from it and have dealth with it successfully must come out for others and support them by sharing their Cancer suffering story.

Why we should care about the use of toilets

Why we should care about the use of toilets

While we might take toilets for granted, billions in the world don’t. Toilet or washroom and all related – loosely called sanitation – plays a vital role in our lives: not only in our daily lives but also for our sustainable development.
Maintain basic hygiene is important for not only human health but also good for environmental development.

Facility for safe human disposal and feces includes maintaining hygiene with the help of doing proper disposal of garbage and wastewater disposal too.
The main agenda of good sanitation is to provide a healthy living environment to all, this also helps in protecting natural resources, provides security, safety, and dignity for people when they defecate.

Through this, we are going to talk facts and figure about toilets and sanitation management.
Today, about one-third of the world’s population lack access to improved sanitation, and 1 billion people still practice open defecation

Open defecation is a leading cause of diarrheal death, says the WHO. The diarrhea death toll stands at around 6,000 a day, mostly of young children.

In India, there are many villages, towns, and rural areas where people lack access to improved sanitation and so they practice open defecation, more than any other region in the world.

Because of zero healthy sanitation practice, half of the malnutrition cases are linked to chronic diarrhea caused by lack of clean water, decent sanitation, and good hygiene, including handwashing with soap.

It is important to spread washroom and sanitization awareness among people because Just 1 gram of feces can contain 10 million viruses, 1 million bacteria, 1,000 parasite cysts, and 100 parasite eggs.

To prevent this issue one of the basic steps is to make people learn that hand-washing with soap after using the toilet is one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent diarrheal diseases and pneumonia.

We must raise awareness and inspire action to tackle the sanitation crisis and kill this issue from the root. And to do this Helping Brother trust is talking about all possible actions by doing numerous washroom and hygiene awareness campaigns in various parts of rural and urban areas. To became, a part of this great initiative does write us back at info@helpingbrother.org
