Gazi University Faculty of Medicine Head of Public Health Department and a member of the Social Sciences Committee of the Ministry of Health. Dr. Mustafa Necmi İlhan made a statement regarding the measures to be taken at the beginning of the year as part of the fight against coronavirus. Stating that New Year’s Day is approaching, İlhan reminded him of his statement on December 2, ‘There may be a curfew for 4 days at the beginning of the year’.
İlhan said, “I mentioned it about 15 days ago. There is a curfew for 2 days at the beginning of the year. This restriction starts on Friday. There is a curfew on Thursday evening, when the New Year’s day is obviously limited. On Friday, the daytime is clearly limited. -If we close the 14-hour period, our citizens will stay at home for a period of approximately 4 days. It will also be an effective intervention in coronavirus transmission.
‘THERE MAY BE RESTRICTED BETWEEN CITIES ON THE NEW YEARS’
Prof. Dr. İlhan emphasized that citizens should not consider the curfew to be applied at the beginning of the year as a holiday and said, “Again, it is necessary to say to our citizens; they should not consider the 3-day 4-day restriction at the beginning of the year as a holiday opportunity. There may be entry-exit restrictions for provinces where the number of coronavirus cases is high.This is not valid for every province; but in places where there are a lot of cases, such an approach can be adopted so that there are no outward cases and new cases with it. “Those who bring food, vaccines, go out of the province outside of work can be prohibited. I say this both for New Year’s Eve and in general. In provinces with a high number of coronavirus cases, it can be prohibited except for those who have entry-exit jobs.”
‘LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL’
Prof. Dr. Stating that the effects of the restrictions can be seen in 8-10 days, İlhan said, “Let’s see this Wednesday-Thursday. Let’s see what happened, the effect of the restriction on the weekend? If the numbers go below thousands, it is very difficult to achieve this until the new year. We need to concentrate more on this; we are in a difficult process. but there is really light at the end of the tunnel.I think that the 2-3 month period is the most important thing in the fight against coronavirus from the beginning of the year, “he said.
