President of Turkish Clinical Microbiology and Disease Infection Association and Chairman of the Ministry of Health Corona Science Board Prof. At the moment, the test is over 30 percent in the institution with my positivity,” he said.
President of the Turkish Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases and Member of the Ministry of Health’s Coronovirus Scientific Committee.
Evaluating the announcement of the first case in monkeypox, Yavuz said, “The patient should be followed up seriously while taking it. For example, this case from Turkey, with whom it was caught, from where it was first caught, a serious filiation study should be done so that it can be passed by joining its immediate surroundings immediately.
“Close contact is very important in this disease”
Yavuz, who is getting closer to being infected by flight, said, “This is a disease that is much easier than flying through an illness. We don’t show it as big as in the coronavirus, but you can say about it. Especially if this is from Turkey, it means a high probability of being in a group. As the age group in life until now, this patient is also like that, people between the ages of 20-40, who are not very healthy. avoid close sexual contact with him. But not with a sexually transmitted disease. It doesn’t come from sexual news. It can be transmitted through the skin by close contact. In other words, the wounds on the skin can be transmitted by contact with the bed linens of children who are touched. Close contact is really important in this disease,” he said.
“There are two types of vaccines. One is to live in our smallpox eradication, a type of vaccine that can replicate. There is also a ‘live virus’, which we call a side-effect vaccine, which can replicate more in order not to reproduce in human vaccines. This is the vaccination that comes into close contact with our patient, which is link to this. “It’s called vaccination. Actually, it can control it,” he said.
“There should be a case by the ministry”
If it is a case originating from abroad, contact yourself when further investigation work is required, “There are still no cases for us. For one of your actions, surveillance is very critical. Is there a disease, what is the thing we call a disease, how is it calculated, this means surveillance. Who we will call a monkeypox case is schooled with standard criteria, and we will announce it to the ground, over all health. We, as KLİMİK Association, did it by WHO and others by purchasing and evaluating them. But is it the restriction of the Ministry of Health? While we, as an association, can reach up to 50 percent of the hospitals, the Ministry can reach all hospitals this way. In such clinics, you need to get a sample of such a case.”
“Prevention of transition to risky groups”
Considering the milder course of the cases in the old days in these new young people, which worries the world, Yavuz said, “It can be seen with a much lighter one and with very few lesions. Because these are always young patient groups. When we look at the phenomena in Africa, there is a death rate of 4-5 in the different subgroup of what is in the body right now in the world. That’s a very high rate. It is the thing to fear. While there is only one case ready at this stage, taking from many things, both the filiation and the abstraction, the surveillance follow-up, and the public vaccination specialist; “I think it can be controlled,” he said.
“Covid is more worrying than monkey pox”
The signs of being treated as if it was related to Covid continued as follows:
- “At this stage, our Covid trauma still continues. It’s a serious goal in Istanbul right now. Test positivity, my positivity is over 30 percent in the institution. The only good news is that most people are fully vaccinated. There are a lot of people who are not vaccinated or are incompletely vaccinated. Already for Covid, we need to mask in public transport right now. Remember last year’s Omicron wave, we said it would be mild, but 10 thousand people died. Monkey pox is very, very difficult to infect by simple productive, not very close contacts. Living in the same house, the same way as the sick person, a very close social relationship in the same house as the relationship, this is contagion. There are too many cases in England, Portugal, Spain, America. The most recent case, the number of cases exceeded 5 thousand. Therefore, the countries to be feared from now on started vaccination and antiviral drug treatment. Those vaccinated against monkeypox, that is, the last generation vaccinated in smallpox eradication studies, are more comprehensive than those who have not been vaccinated at all. There is talk of options in the US, such as options inside the recently worn ones. But convalescent plasma is ready from the blood of very vaccinated people for Turkey. Because the last vaccinated generation in us is very old. Antibody from many products”
