It is transmitted in 4 minutes indoors The cooling of the weather and the increase in the duration of staying indoors increases the importance of the measures related to Kovid-19. According to the latest findings, two people talking for 10 minutes in an open area without a mask and 4 minutes in a closed area creates a risk of contamination. It is not possible for the virus to be transmitted while walking by a person on the road.
The risk of Kovid-19 transmission, which affects the whole world, varies according to the time spent in open and closed environments. While open areas provide advantages in terms of adapting to the distance, it is also difficult to transmit the virus with the ultraviolet effect of sunlight. For this reason, there is a difference between the possibility of getting the virus from the other person in sunlight and outside temperature and the possibility of getting it in an indoor environment where the indoor air is dry.
15 MINUTES RISK IN INDOOR AREA
After the weather started to cool, the increase in the number of people and the duration of staying indoors points to the environment where the spread of the virus becomes easier. In the open area, if the other person is wearing a mask, there is no risk of virus, and if a mask is not worn, this time it comes to the fore to maintain social distance. There is no risk of virus in the case of wearing a mask in a closed area, but the danger begins if the face is open and the period of unmasking exceeds 1-2 minutes. According to the latest evaluations, 15 minutes of unmasked people in a closed area creates a risk.
It is not possible for the virus to be transmitted if two people who do not speak pass by each other while walking. Approximately 10 minutes of conversation in an open area and 4 minutes in a closed area, even if the social distance is 1 meter, creates the risk of transmission in coronavirus.
RISK OF LOOSE OF THE MASK
Ministry of Health Coronavirus Scientific Committee Member Prof. Dr. Ateş Kara pointed out that periods of seasonal transformations are risky and that dry and cold air and slightly moist and warm air create an "advantage" for the virus. “We are entering a closed environment. As soon as there is some relaxation in the mask, the virus can lift its head. Europe is experiencing this earlier than us. Turkey might be possible to say for such a risk. In this period, we need to adapt very seriously to the mask and distance. ”Prof. Dr. Kara emphasized that an obstacle must be placed in front of the coronavirus, and that the easiest form is a "mask".
Stating that mask compliance is good in big cities such as Ankara, Istanbul, Izmir and Antalya and that there are problems in other provinces, Kara continued: “As soon as mask fit is effective, the number of viruses is decreasing very rapidly. It's like this all over the world. In the regions where there is harmony in America, these numbers are low, but they see the highest figures in other parts so far. The same is true for Europe. In this way, we have to provide it. feature here, as people, as individuals if we provide it, then Turkey can overcome this. This has happened before. ”
