‘Decrease in extra deaths accelerated’

Turkish Medical Association (TTB) Pandemic Working Group Member Güçlü Yaman noted that the decrease in extra deaths has accelerated in the last two weeks, falling to 6 percent above the pre-epidemic average. Yaman stated that the high death numbers are the most concrete indication that the epidemic is not over.

According to the statistics and information he prepared, the decrease in extra deaths has accelerated in the last two weeks, falling to 6 percent above the pre-epidemic average. In the last week (14-20 September), an average of 68 extra deaths per day was calculated. Extra deaths calculated for the entire epidemic period increased to 303,000, 3 times the official Covid-19 deaths.

“MORE THAN 15 THOUSAND DEATHS IN THE OMICRON WAVE”

Strong Yaman stated that in the Omicron BA.5 wave that started in July, the extra deaths calculated for Turkey so far exceeded 15 thousand and said, “The official Covid-19 death announced for the same period is around 2 thousand. This difference was a new indicator of how far official epidemic deaths are from the truth. The daily average number of extra deaths calculated for the period between July 6 and September 20 as a full date is 200. The peak point of the wave occurred during the week of August 3-9, with an average of 360 extra deaths per day.

“TURKEY IS AMONG THE COUNTRIES WITH THE MOST DEATH”

Saying to the Economist Magazine that Turkey is among the countries with the highest number of deaths, Yaman said, “According to the Economist, the number of extra deaths in the epidemic has reached 22 million worldwide. 3.4 times the officially reported Covid-19 deaths. Turkey is among the countries with the highest number of deaths in terms of population,” he shared his information.

“A NEW WAVE WILL BE MORE CONTAGIOUS”

Stating that the high number of deaths is the most concrete indicator that the epidemic is not over, Yaman said, “Although the severity has decreased compared to the previous waves, the number of casualties is still very high. This wave is on the way to withering away, but no preparations have been made for a new winter wave.

The Turkish Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (KLİMİK) called for the double vaccine, which is now being implemented in the world, to be brought to Turkey and to be used in our country as well. This new vaccine is effective against both the original virus and the Omicron variant. Child vaccination is still passed on in silence. A new wave will be much more contagious in an environment where masks are almost forgotten in crowded environments such as public transport,” he said.
