Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday questioned the central government regarding the cases of black fungus in the country, why is it implicating the public in formalities instead of providing treatment? He tweeted, “Central government should clarify about the black fungus epidemic, what is being done for the shortage of amphotericin-B medicine? What is the procedure for administering this medicine to the patient? Why is the Modi government implicating the public in formalities instead of giving treatment? Congress President Sonia Gandhi also expressed concern over the rise in cases of mucor mycosis (black fungus) in the country and the alleged lack of essential medicines a few days ago. In a letter to Narendra Modi, he had requested that urgent steps should be taken to provide relief to the patients of this disease.
