Coronavirus primarily affects the human immune system and weakens it. As a result, even after recovering from this infection, the patient's immune system is insufficient to protect him from other infections such as bacterial and fungal infections. One of the post Covid-19 infection is mucormycosis. Mucormycosis is a fungal infection caused by fungi that belongs to the Mucorales family. These funguses can be found in soil, as well as decaying organic matter such as leaves, compost piles, and rotting wood. Every day, everyone is exposed to millions of fungal spores. Safe people, on the other hand, have a strong immune system to support them. However, since the patient's immune system is weakened during Covid-19, many fungal infections spread quickly after the infection. Mucormycosis is a common fungal infection that affects people who have already been diagnosed with Covid-19 or after Covid-19. Mucormycosis is a disease that is relatively rare. The infection is more common in people with weakened immune systems, but it can also strike otherwise healthy people on rare occasions. There are several different immune-boosting foods to choose from, each of which helps to boost immunity and fight various virus infections after Covid-19 infections. Protein-rich foods, omega-3 fatty acid-rich foods, high antioxidant-rich foods and the most important pharma-therapeutic foods like garlic, turmeric, and green tea should be taken during post Covid-19 infections.
