The date for the lifting of restrictions has been given for the first time!
Scientific Committee member Prof. Dr. Stating that they observed that the effect of street restrictions was very strong, Mustafa Necmi İlhan said, "The number of patients decreased from 7 thousand to 1500 in a period of about 1 month. Considering the first dose of the vaccine as January 15, the second dose will be made 28 days later, accordingly, the restrictions may be lifted after February 15 " said. llhan also spoke about the opening of schools.
Gazi University Faculty of Medicine Dean, Head of Public Health Department and a member of the Social Sciences Board of the Ministry of Health. Dr. Mustafa Necmi İlhan said that they saw the effect of the curfew restrictions imposed between 21.00-05.00 on weekdays and from 21.00 on Friday to 05.00 on Monday. Prof. Dr. İlhan said, "When we make a restriction, the number of cases decreases first, and the number of patients decreases in the following 1 week and 10 days. The number of serious patients decreases in 15-20 days following the decrease in the number of patients. Our deaths decrease 15-20 days after our severe patients decrease. We observed that the effect of the restriction was very strong. The number of patients decreased from 7 thousand to 500 in the period of about 1 month, which is a very good thing.
'REMOVAL AFTER FEBRUARY 15 WILL BE APPROPRIATE'
When will the schools open? Prof. Dr. Stating that he hopes that the New Year period will not reflect negatively on the figures, İlhan said, "These few-day figures are important. We will observe whether the new year will have a negative effect by the end of this week. We will also start vaccination. We all need to make as much effort as possible. We would have protected so many of our citizens from coronavirus. Let the vaccination begin, give a dose, advance a little, and then it will be appropriate to remove the restrictions. We all observed that the restrictions on the weekend and evening are very effective. If we think of the time as January 15, the second dose will be made 28 days later, it will be more appropriate to think about lifting the restrictions after February 15 "
'IF IT FALLS UNDER THOUSAND, SCHOOLS CAN BE OPENED'
Evaluating the time when schools can be opened, Prof. Dr. İlhan said the following:
"The continuation of education is our desire. February 15th is now seen as a prediction for the opening of schools, but it will be more correct to re-evaluate when that date approaches. If the number of cases and the number of patients goes downwards, it will be more likely to open our schools within one stage as we did in September-October. It seems that it would be more appropriate to go with the option of distance education for our parents who did not want to at that time, too.
