"The National Health Surveillance System received the first notification of a case of mucormycosis involving a patient from (province - 


) Formosa who had a coronavirus," the Argentine Ministry of Health said in a report.

She turned out to be a 47-year-old woman with diagnoses of arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and coronavirus.

In addition, another likely case of mucormycosis, also associated with COVID-19, in a deceased person living in the province of Buenos Aires is being investigated.

Earlier in Mexico, the first case of "black mold" was detected after COVID-19.

In Russia, they previously stated that there is no threat of "black mold".
