Corona Virus Science Committee member Alpay AzapMade striking statements in the Para Gündem program presented by Ebru Baki on Habertürk TV. At the weekend, people interpreted the nice weather as an opportunity and went out. Alpay Perdition, said Turkey will determine the social isolation of the increasing cases of our citizens in general. Professor The lines at the explanations of the torment are as follows:
THERE IS NO SITUATION AS THE VIRUS STAY IN THE AIR
The point to make and enforce tougher decisions is related to how well our people adapt to existing decisions. Of course, if social isolation obeys rules such as spending less time outside, not meeting many people, it is of course not necessary to force people to close home.
The weather was nice, people went out. I came across some media organs, because the virus hangs in the air for three hours… No, there is no such thing. Only particles of virus scattered from patients connected to the machine in the intensive care unit can stay in the air for three hours. So there is never a situation like the virus hovering. It crashes to the ground within a maximum of two meters.
DO NOT APPROACH MORE THAN A METER OUTSIDE
It is okay to move around, but we need to maintain social distance even when you are out. Do not approach anyone more than a meter called open air. We formulate it like this: Don’t get two people together. Spend as little time outside as possible. Quickly take care of your work and return home.
INCREASE AVOID, NUMBER OF CASE WILL INCREASE
An infected person makes an average of 625 people in 15 days. All these measures to prevent this increase. We are trying to prevent the increase from being fast. The increase is inevitable, the number of cases will increase. But if it suddenly increases, if the number of patients coming in 10 days comes to you within 12 hours, no healthcare organization can handle it. All our aim at the moment is that this rate of increase is as slow as possible.
It did not go away like we were afraid
We are trying to carry out this work with an increase that does not exceed the capacity of our healthcare system. The process did not go as far as we expected and feared. The increase doesn’t seem like a very sharp spike yet. But the social isolation of our citizens that will determine this.
WE ARE COMING TO DAYS THAT WILL NEED INTENSIVE CARE
At the moment, we do not have a patient number that will exceed the capacity of our intensive care units. But as we have seen in the examples of the country before us, it can happen quickly. That’s why we try to be prepared. This disease has such a bad feature. The first week is mild, after a week, people become heavy and need intensive care. We come to the days when the people who start light will get heavier, and the need for intensive care will increase after that. We make our preparations in hospitals according to these scenarios. Of course, we have to prepare for the worst scenario.
