Health Sciences University Gülhane Training and Research Hospital Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology Specialist Assoc. Dr. Ümit Savaşçı stated that the cases of new types of coronavirus (Kovid-19) in children have increased, and said, “Of course, our children are at home for 2 years. They cannot take vitamin D, they do not move, their immune system is suppressed. They can also catch the virus at school because they do not pay attention to some rules.” .
Health Sciences University Gülhane Training and Research Hospital Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology Specialist Assoc. Dr. Ümit Savaşçı stated that he had some reservations about the side effects of the vaccine and said:
“A very good study was conducted in England on this subject. Only 28 deaths occurred as a result of 98 million doses of mRNA vaccine. If we look at our daily death cases, unfortunately, close to 300 people lost their lives. Unfortunately, 28 people in total lost their lives in all vaccinations in England. There have been undesirable deaths. Some of them may not have been vaccinated, they may have had a heart attack, a brain hemorrhage. But the number of cases in terms of side effects is really low. Of course, there are some side effects. But none of them will result in hospitalization, intensive care and death. “This is not an event. So let’s get our vaccinations done. Because unfortunately, very sad events happen to us.”
“The biggest responsibility falls on families”
Assoc. Dr. Regarding deaths at young ages, Savaşçı said, “Our young people, who may be under 20 years old and have obesity, come to the level of being in intensive care in 3-5 days. This is very sad for us. There is an increase in the number of cases, especially in children. Of course, our children are at home for 2 years. They cannot take vitamin D. They don’t move, their immune system is suppressed. They can also catch the virus because they don’t pay attention to some rules at school. Unfortunately, we can have such children that we send to the intensive care unit. The biggest responsibility of the society in this regard is actually the families. The vaccination of everyone who comes to get vaccinated. Especially if 2 full doses, and even a 3rd or 4th dose are required, they must be administered because Israel has currently required the 3rd dose of mRNA vaccine. After all, if a state like Israel can make it mandatory for its people, we should do it as much as possible without disrupting the vaccination program. needed,” he said.
“I don’t think the drug will have a major impact on society”
Warrior also said the following about the drug called Molnupiravir, which is claimed to be developed against the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19):
“Especially after a foreign company turned to vaccine studies, it also gave importance to pharmaceutical studies. A drug that we hope for has emerged as a result of a drug study that makes us very happy. It is a drug with an active ingredient of molnupiravir. Of course, both its production capacity will remain low, and developed countries will demand this drug in large quantities. “Unfortunately, I do not think that it will have a major impact on the society or this epidemic, since it unfortunately does not reach many countries in terms of cost. Our most important weapon here is both the current vaccines we have and the gains we will gain with our domestic vaccines.”
