Head of Karadeniz Technical University (KTU) Medical Faculty, Department of Medical Microbiology, Farabi Hospital Test Center, Prof. Dr. Faruk Aydın said, “It has been proven that the contamination has increased one and a half times. Therefore, we need to increase the distance and hygiene rules even more. Double masks should be used in the crowd. It is important to increase the distance from 1 and a half meters to 2 meters, ”he said.

The Ministry of Health ‘covid19.saglik.gov.t’s according to data released on the map of Turkey at 8-14 February 2021 between Covidien-19 the number of cases of the population compared to most the provinces from the Black Sea region during the first 5 ranking in Trabzon, Rize, Ordu , Giresun and Samsun.

‘WE NEED TO INCREASE THE RULES MORE’
Head of Medical Microbiology Department of KTU Faculty of Medicine, Farabi Hospital Test Center Responsible Prof. Dr. Faruk Aydin, drew attention to Turkey and the Black Sea showed that the mutant virus spreading contagion stressed that a 1.5-fold increase. Aydın said, “There are now 3 mutations in our country. There are also kits that can work with mutated viruses in study centers and in us. Unfortunately it was the British mutation we have been working with so far. But as of today, we have kits that can work with Brazil and South Africa mutations. So from now on we will be able to see where the mutations also originated. We know that the number of mutations has reached a certain number in this city. We can say that mutation can also be effective. However, it would not be correct to say that he will be the only parameter since we do not work in all positive cases. “We need to work with all our positives and see at what rate the mutation is so that we can reach the right results.

RECOMMENDATION OF 2 METERS IN THE DISTANCE

Prof. Dr. Aydın, noting that the mutated virus is in danger of creating a new wave, said, “It has been proven that the contamination has increased 1.5 times.

While expressing coexistence as 15 minutes in the past, now 10 minutes, double masks should be used if it is not very important that the mask is a standard mask. In the distance, it is important to increase from 1 and a half meters to 2 meters. As a result of the mutations reaching and spreading to the Black Sea, the risk will gradually increase and there is a possibility that we will live the month of November, which we do not want and do not want to live again.
