“Pregnant woman deaths increased with mutant virus” – Health News

Head of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine. Dr. In his statement, Mehmet Ceyhan stated that after the increase in mutant virus cases, the deaths of pregnant women due to the virus also increased.

Prof. Dr. Ceyhan, “Pregnancy is already a period in which immunity is suppressed so that the child can be carried in the mother’s womb. Therefore, it should be thought as a person who takes immunosuppressive drugs or a person taking drugs for cancer treatment. It causes the loss with the baby in the womb, “he said.


Prof. Dr. Stating that pregnant women should be vaccinated against corona virus after the first 3 months, Ceyhan said, “Before the mutant virus problem occurs, we recommend vaccination to pregnant women after pregnancy, now we definitely want them to be vaccinated immediately after the first 3 months of pregnancy. This is not just a situation seen in corona virus. the same thing happens with the flu.

When such a type of flu is common, the elderly are more affected and die. But if another type we call H1N1 is seen frequently, more children and young adults are affected and pregnant deaths are also seen there. Pregnant women should think that they are in the risk group and should definitely protect themselves. There are two basic rules; distance and mask. If you pay attention to keep a distance of 2 meters, wear your mask closer than 2 meters to people and we should know that the masks we use daily are effective if we carry the virus. Knowing that if the virus came out of someone’s mouth or nose, it would not protect us, we should be able to ensure that everyone wears a mask. Apart from that, they will not get vaccinated and too many crowds, “he said.


Prof. Dr. Ceyhan also warned about the complete closure and said, “I hope, when 17 days are over, we will not return to our old life on the 18th day immediately. Then we will be wasted 17 days. “We have to tell, we have to provide vaccination in this period and also convince people about the measures to be taken. Unfortunately, we see that there are some deficiencies from the table in the roads and markets,” he said.
