Do. Dr. Ergil: Flu infections have decreased

Dkap Yldrm Beyazt Training and Research Hospital Anesthesia and Reanimation Clinic Responsible Do. Dr. Jlide Ergil said that the measures taken for coronavirus such as masks, distance, and cleaning have significantly reduced the incidence of intensive care due to influenza infection. Ergil, pointing out that the seasonal flu starts in Northern Yarm Kre in December and continues until the end of March, “Normally, this seasonal flu is affected by serious numbers in the world. The cases are normal in our country. And honey is in our operating rooms. We see the results and treat them even in intensive care. This is seen both in the children group and the adult age group. And every year, especially during these seasons, our intensive care becomes very full and we may have difficulty finding empty beds while treating these patients, “he said.


Stating that this has changed this year, Ergil said, “Actually, we were afraid of many infectious diseases at the beginning of the epidemic; We took the precautions to protect against Covid-19, but they actually reduced cases such as seasonal flu, ”he said.


Ergil stated that influenza infections are seriously present in the swine flu epidemic; But in this epidemic, masks and measures seriously reduced flu infections, saying, “Normally, we opened flu outpatient clinics on the instructions of the Ministry of Salk during this period. We even put night shifts in order to have our patients coming from the emergency during the swine flu period. But in this epidemic we never saw them. There was no need for influenza patients from this type of treatment and they did not apply to these outpatient clinics. World numbers were also cleared in this way, in Europe and South America, the numbers were cleared in the applications. There are reductions between 60 and 98 percent. To give a word, 20 of our 100 patients who applied before were undergoing intensive care due to the flu or the complications brought about by the flu. But now this number is 1 or 2. So we have so few inpatients, “he said.


Ergil, emphasizing the need to change certain honey habits as a society from now on, “I especially remember that from now on, I think that people with flu will not travel without a mask. I think that a social team will also change our rules. For example, even if the pandemic ends in our hospitals, our normal citizens I think that patients or those who come to the polyclinic cannot be taken without a mask in time. We normally would not examine our patients with our mask except in operating rooms, intensive care units or close contact with the patient. I think we will use them more often from now on.
