Health Sciences University Gülhane Training and Research Hospital Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology Specialist Assoc. Dr. Hope Warrior, the assessment found regarding the increased corona virus cases in Turkey.
“THE NUMBER OF HEAVY CASE HAS NOT INCREASED”
Assoc. Dr. Savaşçı pointed out that despite the measures taken in the Black Sea region, there was an increase in the number of cases, and said that mutations may also have an effect. Assoc. Dr. Warrior, “The mutation may have increased the number of cases a little more. It is very pleasing that our incident-heavy cases have not increased. Since the number of severe cases does not increase, there is not a very serious increase in the number of our clinical and intensive care units. Our needs for hospitalization and intensive care may increase a little in the next month. Necessary measures will be taken for this, but we are not very scary at the moment, “he said.
“TURKEY MAY ALSO HAS SEVERAL MUTATIONS”
Assoc. Dr. Warrior, noting that there may be unique to Turkey several mutations, “each received PCR sample mutation does not work, especially the viral load is high, if you have symptoms of the disease Trying mutations in them. No difference with the disease in the UK mutation last month. Brazil and South Africa mutation now under our control. our clinic the patient does not watch as different from the virus in the first corona, they are pleasing aspects. until now mutation did us a reflection clinically severe patients, this is gratifying. unique to Turkey may also be several mutations. our country has mutations will be identified on perhaps next month, the name of ‘Anatolia mutation,’ ‘Turkey mutation’ will be able to say, “he said.
“NOW THE VIRUS IS TRYING TO LIVE IN HARMONY WITH PEOPLE”
Assoc. Dr. Stressing that there are positive mutations, warrior said, “When we look at the general mutation course after this period, we find that there is a tendency to bring the disease to the size of seasonal flu. We do not have many patients in intensive care units. This means that the virus tries to live in harmony with people, because as it harms, it cannot survive. The virus tries to survive, if the living thing dies, it also dies. This is the general rule, it starts not to do much harm, “These are what we call positive mutations,” he said.
“POSITIVE SLOPES BEGIN TO SEASONAL FLU MUTATIONS”
Assoc. Dr. Stating that there is a trend towards seasonal flu in the corona virus, the warrior said:
“What we’ve observed is that mutations do not have a heavy effect on people’s illness. Such positive changes can also happen. We normally get the flu every year and mutate every year. It makes us bedridden, but ultimately it may not have fatal effects. This is very important data for us, a promising data. We think that it will continue by reducing its more deadly, more damaging effects on humans. Our cases have increased, but lung involvement in our patients has become less intense. This is very important data for us. The need for oxygen has started to be very low, so the virus has started not to affect the lung much anymore; of course, if we do not undergo a very different and lethal mutation. We can comment that ‘The virus has lost its effect with positive mutations.
