Minister of Health Fahrettin Koca met with physicians and healthcare professionals who treated Covid-19 patients via video conference. Minister Koca received information about the condition of the patients treated in different provinces and the treatment processes.
Reminding that the coronavirus epidemic threatened both the world and our country, Minister Koca noted that the biggest burden was on the shoulders of healthcare workers during this difficult period. Minister of Health Koca continued his words as follows:
“Our health professionals, whose number reaches 1 million 100 thousand, is our greatest strength. I know what a difficult struggle you are in. On the one hand, you are at risk while trying to save lives. We distributed 24 million surgical masks, 3 million N95 masks, 1 million protective overalls and glasses to our hospitals.
We think that the earlier we start the treatment of patients, the more we can stop the arrival of respiratory distress and intensive care. We think it is important to start these drugs in the early period. It is extremely important that you make an effort to protect our employees. ”
Physicians gave Minister Koca detailed information about Covid-19 patients in their hospitals. The physicians who stated that there was no problem about medical equipment and protective material, thanked Minister Koca.
The meeting also consulted on treatment protocols, drug use and intensive care processes.
