Health Minister Fahrettin Koca made a statement after the Coronavirus Scientific Committee Meeting.
Highlights from Minister Koca’s statements:
“From Monday, we will share the 2 dose vaccination map”
Screening tests are done with the permission of our parents. We are updating our table showing the first dose vaccination rates of our provinces on the map of Turkey, which we share with you on a daily basis, and we are starting to share the same map with the rates of 2 doses of vaccination. Starting Monday, we will share the map showing the 2 dose vaccination rates.
“The unvaccinated rate in our cases and losses is very high”
In recent days, we have witnessed that the high number of our losses is associated with the effectiveness of the vaccine. The unvaccinated rate among our cases and losses is very high. This is an indication of what a disaster awaits us without vaccines. As the ways of reaching people are restricted, the virus infects the people it can reach. Unfortunately, it is not possible to prevent this without gaining collective immunity.
