Chest Diseases Specialist Prof. Dr. After Bülent Tutluoğlu caught coronavirus after a year, ‘getting sick for the second time’ was among the most curious subjects. Infectious Diseases Specialist Dr. Lecturer Member Cengiz Uzun said, “If a person has been vaccinated or survived the coronavirus and still gets the disease again, the cause may be mutation,” he said.
“THE VIRUS MAY NOT BE COMPLETELY ABSORBED FROM THE BODY”
Dr. Lecturer “If a person gets coronavirus again, it is probably why it is a mutation. If the mutation of the current mutations progresses and becomes more frequent, then the number of cases increases. If we say that we have had the virus once in 10 thousand, once in a hundred thousand, then this situation will increase even more. Cases of coronavirus for the second time were reported. However, these are not too many. Another reason for this is that the virus may not have disappeared completely from the body. The virus may remain silent in the body for a while and become active again. In other words, if the first virus you caught and the virus detected later are exactly the same, this is often either not lost or there is a difference in the virus, “he said.
“VACCINE CREATES HIGHER ANTIBODIES IN THOSE WHO PASS THE CORONAVIRUS”
Stating that there are some question marks in the minds of citizens about vaccination and antibodies, Uzun explained:
“IF WE DO NOT WANT TO GO BACK TO THE OLD, SOME MORE PATIENCE”
Infectious Diseases Specialist, who warns about compliance with social distance, masks and hygiene rules. Lecturer Cengiz Uzun said, “The process is a dynamic process both regionally and temporally. Because everything can change from today to tomorrow. If the number of cases in Istanbul doubled today, we would have to close it immediately again. If we do not want to go back to the past, let’s be a little more patient, at least settle with what we have. Let’s continue to follow the rules. Again, let’s obey the mask, social distance rules. Let’s not force the crowd. We need to increase the number of vaccines. Protection and antibody formation rates are high. Therefore, if we increase the vaccination, we can get rid of the virus in a much shorter time without a new peak. “
