Pune, 21st May 2021: Considering the rising number of Mucormycosis cases, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to conduct surgeries on the patients of Mucormycosis daily. And for that has made special arrangements at Dalvi Hospital in Shivajinagar area of the city.

According to PMC officials, every day 10 surgeries will be conducted on the Mucormycosis patients. The operation theatre will be kept open for them for 24 hours. The treatment will begin within a fortnight once all the arrangements are in place.
