Minister of Health Fahrettin Koca made statements at the press conference held after the Coronary Science Committee Meeting.
Stating that the epidemic agenda of the world continues in his statement, Minister Koca said, “We are in the days when we need to add strength to our strength. We are in a good place in the continuation of a long struggle. But every day we stop where we are, is lost. ”
Pointing out that many countries' health system is in danger of collapse, Koca said, “In the welfare societies, peace has taken its place in turmoil. Although the condition of our country is good in many ways, our pain continues on the night of March 11, when we announced our first loss of life, ”he said.
Underlining that it is possible to avoid coronavirus, Koca stated that the virus that caused the disease was transmitted through breathing, and the mask is an important measure accepted worldwide. Noting that the mask alone is insufficient at close range, Koca said, “Distance rule is therefore an indisputable measure all over the world. Hand cleaning is an indispensable rule. The world shows whatever success against the spread of the disease to the extent that it can comply with these rules. ”
Referring to the spreading rates of the disease today, Koca made the following warnings: “Engagement ceremonies, weddings, condolences, market places, shopping malls, public transportation, military farewells, beaches and beaches. Open or closed, but crowded, other common spaces. Those who go on holiday should know that the Kovid-19 measures are in favor of vacationers. If those who move away from the crowd of big cities do not prefer other crowds and apply the distance rule too much, we will be grateful.
At weddings, even the fear of casting a shadow tomorrow's joy should be enough to comply with the measures alone. Funerals, condolences, and seasons should not cause new suffering. Neither farewell nor farewell should take any risks in the farewell of the soldiers. Respect for health and the duty of the country makes it necessary. Our youth are responsible for Mehmetçik, whose test is positive. ”
“It was forbidden to send off troops in 8 provinces”
Pointing out that the state has implemented some measures, the Minister of Health, Koca said, “It is forbidden to send off soldiers in 8 provinces. Our religious officials; initiated a study to prevent risks related to funeral, condolence, mevlit, and mass worship. Our security forces take measures involving sanctions in market places.

Stating that the length of the struggle caused complacency like all over the world, Koca said, “Let's face it, the length of the struggle caused partial compassion in our country as well as all over the world, but we have proved that we can recover from the decline in the last 10 days. Our new case numbers are at 1000 levels ”.

“It is inevitable that we take this into account. Fighting the Kovid-19 outbreak is part of our lives. But life is bigger than that. Let us give the right to life while giving our struggle. As long as we follow the rules. Optimists and those who love life have the power to fight. Let's be aware. There is a tiredness on us. The cause of this fatigue is this epidemic. Let's get rid of this fatigue. Let's protect our place in the fight. If we leave, let's take our place again. Let's be one of 83 million against the epidemic. ”
The importance of fillation
