Oral health care professionals have reported about post COVID-19 patients presenting signs of uncommon bacterial diseases such as Osteomyelitis of the maxillofacial region. The hosts at substantial risk of developing these fungal infections were diabetics, immune compromised individuals, patients on corticosteroids, and those with hematologic insufficiencies.
