New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said the Delhi government will take all necessary steps and precautions to check cases of black fungus or mucormycosis in the city.

The fungal infection is caused by a group of moulds known as mucormycetes present naturally in the environment. Recently, several states, including Delhi, have reported a rise in the number of black fungus cases among people recovering from COVID-19.

"For the black fungus (cases), the Delhi government will take all the steps and precautions necessary," Kejriwal said in a statement.
