The tests you have done before 6 days will be negative. One of the most important conditions for the test to be positive is to take it at the appropriate stage of the disease. You contacted today, that person was positive today, if you go and have a test immediately, your result will be negative. This is something that misleads you.

' If there is such a contact, it is expected 5-6 days, if you have any symptoms, go to it. If you do not have any symptoms or problems, it is very unlikely that your test will be positive before 5-6 days after that contact. It causes trouble with too much test load in identifying people. "

A disruption in one leg will cause us to fail in our fight against the pandemic or to achieve the success we want. " he spoke.

You correct your mask with your gloved hands. This is a very wrong practice. It should not be forgotten that it can be transmitted not only by droplets in the environment, but also by rubbing our hands on our face and eyes. " used expressions.
