IN ISTANBUL, WE ENCOUNTER THE LEAST CASES IN TERMS OF POSITIVITY

A professor who noted that the number of cases and patients in intensive care is declining Doctor, “we have been fighting this fight since March 11, 2020. At the moment, we encounter the least cases in terms of positivity seen in Istanbul since then. For it to continue like this, everyone needs to adapt, they need to get vaccinated. July and August will be a comfortable period, we can at least say that we can be clear. At the moment, we have very few patients in our intensive care units, and in our Turkey hospitals, they have returned to their normal functions. Our hospitals have started to carry out all functions outside covid,” he said.

WE’LL FINISH VACCINATION IN JULY

He noted that vaccinations continue at all speed.

* According to the current population, we need to vaccinate 9.5 million people in Istanbul. As of June 16 at 00.00, 6 million 531 thousand 933 doses of the vaccine were given in Istanbul.

* About 2.5 million Turkish people completed their second dose. In other words, 2.5 million people are now vaccinated in Istanbul. He’s got 3 million left. We’ll be done by the first week of July. According to each age group, our goal changes.

* We will vaccinate all Turkish people over the age of 12. Our government online vaccine tracking system is one of the best in the world and was established in 2009. However, currently in Istanbul under normal conditions, we can make 400 thousand doses of the vaccine.

WHEN ARE MASKS COMING OFF IN ISTANBUL?

He also touched on the topic of mask use, which is one of the most interesting topics of the citizen. Dr. July-August 2021 restrictions will be flexed,  was said.

“Sometimes we are asked, When will the mask come out? When will the epidemic end? Unfortunately, no advanced tech scientist on earth knows when this epidemic will end. Because this epidemic is very different from past outbreaks. As long as it doesn’t end all over the world for him, we need to know that this epidemic never ends. As long as our people are aware, as long as they are vaccinated, we anticipate that from July to August we will enter a period of much more relaxed, much reduced restrictions. We anticipate that there may be a relaxation in the use of the mask in Turkey, most likely outdoors, during certain summer periods,” he said.

.
WE CAN DO SECOND DOSE SYNOVACS, NO STOCK PROBLEM WITH BIONTECH

Doctor, who stressed that there is a sufficient number of vaccines, said:

* We can make a second dose of Sinovac vaccines. Hopefully, as of next week, the first doses of Sinovac will be left to our people’s use and preference again. But here’s the thing, we don’t have a vaccine problem with Biontech. Not in our stock problem. How much demand, how much vaccine we have.

* We also have the opportunity. We are very happy that people are coming, the demand for the vaccine. Because think of it as a holiday for us. It was a process we had been going through for two years. For us, it’s not about fighting disease, it’s about protecting people from getting sick.

.
WE ANTICIPATE THAT SCHOOLS IN TURKEY WILL OPEN EASILY

”As long as you keep the distance outdoors, I anticipate that the restrictions on the use of masks will be lifted,“ said, ” if our number of cases is at this level or falls down, I predict that schools will be easily opened. In any case, vaccination will provide this. I expect that our children will easily meet their friends and teachers at school with their social lives in September,” he said.

As for the upcoming Eid al-Adha, he said, ”I hope we will live like Eid al-Adha.”
