Thermometer warning from Scientific Board member Ministry of Health Coronavirus Scientific Committee Member Assoc. Dr. Afşin Emre Kayıpmaz said, “A few months ago, we talked about the narrowing of the circle. Now the circle is gone; the disease entered through the door. ”
Ankara City Hospital Emergency Medicine Clinic Training Officer, Ministry of Health Coronavirus Scientific Committee Member Assoc. Dr. Afşin Emre Kayıpmaz touched on the increasing number of serious patients recently. Scientific Committee Member Kayıpmaz stated that with the arrival of winter months, gatherings in closed areas have increased and that extra attention should be paid to the rules in indoor areas. It also shows that the temperature measurement systems used at the entrances of places such as shopping malls, cafes, various institutions and organizations are not reliable; He emphasized that using HES code instead of it would be healthier.
"THE CALIBRATION OF ALL THESE TEMPERATURES MAY NOT BE ACCURATE"
Noting that high fever is one of the most prominent features of Covid-19 disease, there is no high fever or fever may rise momentarily in some patients. Dr. Doesn't disappear, “Fever is indeed one of the most prominent features of the disease, but some studies have shown that half of the patients have fever. These are studies conducted on large patient series. Naturally, the patient may not have a fever at the time of entering the shopping center. Since the weather is cold, its fever may be low. The calibration of all those thermometers may not be correct either. When this is the case, it is much more useful to determine whether the person or the guests who will enter the process are risky by querying the HES code, rather than trying to detect the fever. In this way, I think that a method that seems to have very low benefit will be avoided and that the healthy people who come there will be prevented from getting sick ”.
"ENTERTAINMENT PLACES CREATE A RISKY ENVIRONMENT"
Referring to the increasing number of cases in Istanbul, Scientific Committee Member Kayıpmaz said, "As you know, there is a mobility of about 20 million patients in Istanbul, it is the 14th largest city in the world and a city with a high population density. This density is even higher in some districts. The larger the crowd, the higher the risk of transmission of the disease. Let's not just think of contagion in homes, residences. Domestic contamination is at the forefront now, but we also see that the contamination is at a serious level in restaurants, cafeterias and entertainment venues. If it is eaten and drunk, masks are removed, distances are not protected, the environment is crowded and the environment is not well ventilated, the disease is easily transmitted from person to person. As you know, activities in such venues ceased after 22:00. Here, too, loud music can be listened to, live music can be played, and music can be accompanied by music. People speak louder or shouting because the music is loud. This means the scattering angle of virus particles% C.
