The human immune system is predominantly damaged and weakened by the coronavirus. As a result, even after recovering from one infection, the patient's immune system is insufficient to protect him from other ailments such as bacterial and fungal infections. One of the negative effects of Covid-19 infection is mucormycosis. Mucormycosis is a fungus infection caused by fungi belonging to the Mucorales family. These fungi can be found in soil, compost piles, decomposing wood, and decaying organic waste such as leaves, among other places. Every day, everyone is exposed to millions of fungus spores. Safe people, on the other hand, have a strong immune system to keep them safe. Many fungal infections spread quickly after Covid-19 infection due to the patient's weakened immune system. Mucormycosis is a common fungus that affects people who have had Covid-19 or who have had it after having Covid-19. Mucormycosis is an extremely rare disease. Persons with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to infection, although it can even strike seemingly healthy people in rare cases. Following Covid19 infestations, there are a variety of immune-boosting foods to pick from, each of which help in building immunity and battling a number of virus infections. Protein-rich diets, omega-3 fatty acid-rich meals, high antioxidant-rich meals, and the most important pharma-therapeutic foods like garlic, turmeric, and green tea should be consumed after Covid-19 infections.
