Stated that there is still no effective remedy against the corona virus, prof. Dr. Mehmet Sihan said, “There was news about the American company’s drug. However, the drug is in Phase 1, their research in animals has just been completed. Many drugs have been investigated in this way. In fact, the structure of the drug does not seem to bring any innovation. It is a drug that acts like favipiravir. Therefore it is very large. I do not expect anything, “he said. Drawing attention to the increase in cases of children, Prof. Dr. Sihan said, “The reason is that the delta version is more contagious. Otherwise the delta version adapts to something in the child with a mutation and it does not appear to him. Its only feature is that it is transmitted faster. A disease-causing trait, slightly higher mortality rates.” Children. A picture we said was not viewed. However, there are many cases of children because the total number is high. With the pumping of certain companies, there is news such as’ closed children; Vitamins D and C are missing ‘. These are extremely dangerous. Children’s metabolism is not like adults, ‘what will happen? “We can not say ‘let them take excess’ vitamins too. They should keep their hands away from children and stay away. Children do not need vitamin supplements. Children can only be protected with vaccines. We also expect age to go down for vaccines,” he said.
‘Numbers Returning to the Pandemic Period’
Prof. Dr. stressed that the picture has changed in the corona virus, Chihan said, “The picture looks a bit like a cold, which made our job difficult. Last year people were more careful to this day, so respiratory illnesses were significantly reduced. Now the numbers go back to the period before the plague. At least that period. “We are seeing cases of colds and colds as severe as we see them. There is a habit of calling it flu, it is very wrong. We have not seen a case of flu in Turkey yet. Before we start seeing it, risk groups should get the flu vaccine immediately,” he said. said.
“Leave family, I can not find out”
Is there a difference between the corona virus and the common cold, Prof. Dr. Sihan said:
“Unfortunately, there is no such distinction. Let the family understand, I can not distinguish ‘Is it the coronavirus or is it a virus that causes a cold’ in a child if I see it. There is only one way to differentiate, test. Not only Covid-19, but also viruses. “There are tests, you have to do them too.”
‘FLU is a heavy board, it falls into bed’
In his statement that the corona and flu virus will be very rare, Chihan said, “This is the characteristic of viruses; while an infected virus, our immune system secretes substances that will prevent a second virus from causing widespread disease. If it can not prevent enough, you will see both together. You can see one after the other, he said. The second disease is serious. The flu does not go away with a runny nose and sneezes, as one thinks. Otherwise the burden on hospitals will increase. “People who feel it needs to be tested,” he said.
