Black fungus was recently announced as an epidemic in four states in India. Just a few weeks after black fungus was terrifying people, reports of four cases of white fungus emerged in Patna. Reportedly, white fungus is more dangerous than the black fungus. Doctors have also warned that delay in treatment can lead to death and so they must be taken with utmost seriousness.
It should be noted that these fungal infections are not new. Both black and white fungus are caused by mucoromycetes, which are already present in our environment.
