Member of the Council of Social Sciences of the Ministry of Health Prof. Dr. Mustafa Necmi İlhan, in his statements to TRT Haber, said: “We hope to be in front of our citizens with good news after the Scientific Committee next week”, and continued his statements as follows:
“If we look at yesterday’s figure at the stage where we are now, we have seen 4,425 new cases and less than 20 in our death toll. Of course, everything is like that, if our fellow citizens continue to be cautious , if our fellow citizens who miss their vaccinations complete their vaccinations, that is to say that this process will progress for the better. It is possible. I believe that the Ramadan event has contributed positively to the process due to the relatively limited social activities. This was the case last year too.The numbers went down, but the cases increased with the gatherings during Eid.
If we spend it carefully during the holidays, especially when the weather gets warmer, I think we can go through the summer with more relaxation if we pay attention to the ventilation in the places where we visit our elders during the holiday. of Ramadan, and if we pay attention not to be crowded with chronically ill people.
It should also be noted that the epidemic continues both in our country and in the world. So far, 97,000 of our fellow citizens have lost their lives. Hopefully we won’t see such a process in the future. We will not see such cases;
If they continue to be booster doses, hopefully very soon, maybe next week, those numbers will drop below 2,000. More importantly, our death toll is below 10. As we go as the numbers go down we have all learned that this is reflected in the death numbers after 15-20 days. I hope this situation will be reflected in the number of deaths in the near future.
We are also pleased that there may be some relief from wearing masks in closed areas. Here, especially if there are citizens who want to wear masks, it should be justified. People might want to pay attention to it, they might want to wear it.”
MEMBER OF THE SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE PROF. DR İLHAN: ON TRAVEL LIKE PLANE, TRAIN, BUS…
Making statements on the obligation of masks in schools and public transport, Prof. Dr. Mustafa Necmi İlhan, in his statements before the meeting, expressed the latest developments with the following words:
“I think in the next stage there will be a little more relaxation in closed areas, but there may be a process where a mask will be worn during long journeys such as planes, trains, buses and in environments such as hospitals.
Schools will open next week. I wonder if we can be more careful in schools, what precautions we can take, these will probably be studied. Citizens are also very interested in our national vaccine, TURKOVAC. There may be information about the progress of the vaccine.
