JK News Today

Srinagar, May 26:

Jammu and Kashmir has so far reported eight suspected mucormycosis—black fungus—cases while one more suspected person has died so far, officials said on Wednesday.

Among the fresh cases, they said, two are at Jammu, three at Kathua and one each at Reasi, Srinagar and Udhampur respectively. While one death—a 40-year-old man from Poonch—has been confirmed, another victim is said to be resident of Kathua.

“The report of the suspected patient from Kathua as well as eight other patients under treatment is still awaited,” a senior official told “Those under treatment are mostly covid-19 patients,” the official added.

The J&K government earlier this week declared the mucormycosis as epidemic disease under Section 2 of the Epidemic Disease Act 1897.
