Health Minister Fahrettin Koca made a statement regarding the Omicron variant at the Parliamentary Budget meetings.
Headlines from Fahrettin Koca's statements;
Was there an Omicron variant?
Yes we have. Do not worry. A total of 6 cases have been detected so far, 1 in Istanbul and 5 in Izmir.
These 6 cases did not need hospital. I would like to say that there are patients whose symptoms are mild, who are followed up on an outpatient basis, and who do not have any problems.
Our citizens should not be worried about the Omicron variant, we think that the current information about this variant is that the contagiousness is higher, but its virulence may be lower with preliminary information.
