Attention to Travelers: Keep your distance of 1 meter from other people

Faculty Member Dr. Hasan Hacıosman made an important warning about corona virus, especially for those who travel abroad to be more careful, and said that there is no cure or vaccine against the virus yet. Hacıosman stated that it is useful to keep a distance of one meter from other people when communicating with them.

The number of confirmed cases of corona virus, which is due to the coronavirus epidemic that started in Wuhan, the most populous city in the center of China, has reached 10 thousand, and the number of dead has exceeded 210. Corona virus was seen in 17 other countries besides China, including Cambodia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, USA and Vietnam, and the timing of corona virus is also a concern. Because many people travel to the country to celebrate the New Moon Year, which begins on January 25 and lasts until February 8.

While stating that such viruses can spread rapidly through travels like a forest fire, Faculty Member Dr. Hasan Hacıosman from Nişantaşı University Health Vocational School noted that the corona virus is a large group of viruses that affect the respiratory system. Dr. Hasan Hacıosman, who made important warnings about being more careful especially for those traveling abroad, said, “People who get the corona virus have symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, difficulty breathing and sore throat. Those who have these symptoms must consult a doctor”.


While stating that there is not yet a treatment method or vaccine against the virus, Dr. Hasan Hacıosman said, “It is useful to keep a distance of one meter from other people when communicating with them. And it is absolutely necessary to wear a mask. Especially the most protective ones are the respiratory mask called N95. But when this is not available, we recommend wearing normal respiration masks. The virus can also be transmitted through contact. Therefore, we should also be sensitive about the use of personal belongings. We should not contact the infected products to our mouth, face and eyes. We should not be in close contact with infected people. In order to keep our natural immunity strong, we should eat well, get enough sleep and consume plenty of fluids. Currently, although there is not an effective treatment method against coronavirus, elderly people, people with heart and kidney failure, and people having diseases such as cancer, diabetes, asthma, and copd are under a greater risk. Therefore, it is very important to start an early treatment with early diagnosis”
