If Not Covid-19 Then Black Fungus: Shooting Coach Monali Gorhe Dies of ‘Black Fungus’

Indian shooting coach Monali Gorhe died due to black fungus on Thursday, 20/05/2021. Her father, Manohar Gorhe too succumbed to COVID-19 on Thursday. The National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) mourned the death of the daughter and father. “With great sorrow we inform that Ms Monali Gorhe, Pistol Coach of Core Group and an efficient technical official passed away today due to black fungus. Its a tragedy that her father also died today. The Shooting fraternity mourns the sad demise of a hard-working human being,” NRAI said in an official statement.

Monali was admitted to a hospital after being diagnosed with COVID-19 but was discharged, only to get re-admitted to treat mucormycosis. Many people recovering from COVID-19 have of late been afflicted by black fungus — or mucormycosis — disease. It is a fungal infection that affects the nose, eye and sometimes the brain. Monali was the coach of the pistol core group. She had also served as the national coach of the Sri Lankan shooting team. She had set up a shooting coaching center called Excel Shooting in Nashik, where she was training hundreds of students in Maharashtra.
