The Black Fungus Epidemic, which is the big thing in Telangana, sees thousands of patients seek treatment at ENT Hospital and Gandhi Hospital dedicated to fighting mucormycosis. The black market and fake medicines rackets are rising again as con men use social media and cheat people. 


Amphotericin B is the drug that is vital to fight fungal infection and is in big demand across the state. The need for this drug is like Remdesivir, which was the most popular drug throughout the country during the peak of the second wave. Special Operation Team has busted the recent racket for the fake Amphotericin B from Madhapur. The Special Ops arrested four men connected with the illegal sale and usage of patients suffering from Mucormycosis. 


The main accused, Dr Obul Reddy, a physician at ENT hospital, is still on the run. In contrast, the other three men are Vikas Reddy and Sreedhar, medical shop owners and Nagaraju, a private employee. The SOT caught these three men selling Cetriaxone and Tazobactam by pasting Amphotericin stickers on these vials. Also, the absconding doctor was responsible for stealing vials from the ENT hospital and supplying these goons to sell at high rates of 45,000 per vial. At the time of their arrest, the SOT recovered 45 vials of Amphotericin B, three vials of Ceftriaxone, Tazobactam and Olcefone-XL,18 Lakh rupees in cash, along with a car and scooter. The search for the absconding doctor is still on, and the information about the patients to whom they sold is yet to be retrieved.
