"We’re not perverts, we’re not prone to HIV. We’re real people with real stories." Loved this story on an LGBTQ podcast in Singapore. #Pride2021 https://t.co/WYVvjmviAD

Stating that death of 82 mucormycosis patients in the state since June 7 was “disturbing” and that “no patient should die for want of medicines,” the Bombay High Court asked the Centre on Thursday to increase allocation of Amphotericin-B vials. https://t.co/ThOYAGzYoU

Centralized to decentralized and now back to centralized - India's #vaccination policy u-turn follows mounting criticism. Decision welcomed by experts but beyond the 'free vaccine for all' claim, critics say blaming states w/out acknowledging center's mistakes is unfair #COVID19 https://t.co/2hl1fdMPW5

Lastly, do listen to #WorklifeIndia's podcast on mucormycosis. Alongside Iqra we spoke to Dr @akshaygn who treats mucormycosis patients and Dr Laxminarayan of @CDDEP who explains how it links to Covid and steroid abuse. Hosted by @devinaguptanews. https://t.co/YFKAoCAdb5

There are many families in India who are grieving the loss of loved ones to mucormycosis. Please keep them in your prayers. Those people could potentially have been saved if the drug was available in sufficient supply.

That was Iqra's story, and one of many difficult stories about mucormycosis. Thank you for reading this far. If you or your loved ones have recently recovered from Covid, please keep an eye out for warning signs and seek medical advice if needed.

She hopes a policy that prioritises certain patients is not implemented as it “leaves doctors with difficult choices to make.” For families who cannot procure the drug for treatment, she asks, “What do they do, do they watch their loved ones die?” https://t.co/HQfVtT5NP6

Iqra disagrees. “Both as a lawyer and as a granddaughter, I feel that my grandfather who is 80 years old has every right to live, has every right to live a dignified life. And it’s the state’s duty to protect that, to deliver on that - it’s a constitutional right.” https://t.co/UyCaTlppxg

India is still seeing an acute shortage of amphotericin, and earlier this week the Delhi High Court said something that made waves. They said younger patients of mucormycosis may need to be prioritised as the older generation “has lived its life.”

The family is trying to import extra vials of amphotericin from abroad just in case he needs them. The doctor says he probably will. Iqra says it's been a harrowing and traumatising experience overall, but they're grateful that he is recovering.

Iqra's grandfather is still in pain and not out of the woods yet. The infection can resurface and the family can’t afford to let their guard down. He is on expensive antifungal medicine and needs weekly check-ups. If the infection spreads now, it will likely affect his eye.
