Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine Public Health Specialist and Coronavirus Scientific Advisory Board member Prof. Dr. Levent Akin, said in a statement, the major cause of the increase in cases of IR, which is currently in circulation in TurkeyEnglish variantHe said that around 70-90 percent of them settled almost everywhere.

Akın said, “It is so common that we do not even consider it necessary to scan ‘whether this is the English variant or the original variant’ for the cases that trap the microbe, because we see a very common British variant. it can be transmitted and cause symptoms, “he said.


Prof. Dr. Akın said that while people were seriously bored of staying away from social life, they attacked areas such as restaurants, indoor venues or public bazaars with revenge as of March 1.

Mask, noting that the distance rules were ignored, Akın said, “There is a virus that we already know to be very contagious. This environment facilitated the spread of the virus. Therefore, the cases increased rapidly. Our number of cases was around 5-6 thousand. case we report. Then you can guess how common the disease is. “The main reason for this is that the society does not pay attention to the necessary measures to protect itself and the presence of a virus that spreads very quickly.”


Prof. Dr. Levent Akın stated that the vaccine is very important in stopping the spread of the disease, therefore Ramadan monthHe stated that the vaccination work should continue. Akın said:

“Applied as far as I know Vaccine It does not create a contradiction regarding fasting. We are already dealing with such a calamity, such a disaster that I guess that the Presidency of Religious Affairs will give correct suggestions and warnings on this issue. Regardless, we need to instill a large amount of society. Ramadan is a very special month for the entire Muslim community. But this month, it is very important that our people do not die, get sick and do not go to hospital. We currently have around 220 to 250 thousand active cases. It’s so high number. Can you imagine that about 250 out of every 1 million people carry it with an infectious agent, “he said.

Prof. Dr. Akın stated that personal protective measures are very important; stating that there is a need for a widespread vaccine, but he said, “If we get a widespread vaccination, we will not only benefit ourselves, but also our society. Therefore, people may not fast on the days when vaccinated during Ramadan. fast I think that they do not keep up and then complete their missing fast. But, as I said, this is a bit of a specialty of theologians. I cannot give the exact answer to this; but I would like all people to be vaccinated when it is their turn in Ramadan, so that we can solve this trouble in the society.


Prof. Dr. Akın stated that the decrease in the number of cases during Ramadan may change depending on the behavioral patterns in the society, “If the society continues to behave in crowded areas, collective behaviors, crowded closed areas, the increase of cases continues.

Although Ramadan is a very special month, people are calmer and their behavioral patterns are perhaps more introverted, but there is still movement in the month of Ramadan. For this reason, there is not much difference for me in terms of transmission of the disease during Ramadan or non-Ramadan days, I think the increase in cases will continue in Ramadan, if this goes on. ”
