If COVID-19 symptoms develop during follow-up periods in people with close contact, sampling is ensured by the filiation teams.

(1 small cup of bleach is placed in 10 liters of water.)

      ADDITIONAL 2 COVID-19 ISOLATION OF POSITIVITY PATIENTS AT HOME

      Required home conditions

      1. In order to apply home quarantine to positive persons, it is mandatory to have a separate room belonging to the person so that there is no contact with other individuals in the house (residence, dormitory, housing, etc.b). If the same bathroom and toilet are used in the house, these places are disinfected after each use. Disinfection is done with 1% diluted bleach. (1 small cup of bleach is placed in 10 liters of water.)
      2. The covid-19 positive person who is quarantined in the house is monitored with a wristband. Cannot leave the house during quarantine (can only leave in case of emergency according to the information of the quarantine center)
      3. Visitors to the house where the Covid-19 positive person has been quarantined are absolutely unacceptable.

      How the Process Works

      1. The person is informed that he has tested positive by the Contact Team of the Ministry of Health.
      2. It is important that he does not go to another test center and do a test repetition, so that he does not increase the infection.
      3. People who are called to the hospital by contact follow-ups will come to The Pandemic Hospital and make their evaluations and it will be decided to follow them at home or in the hospital. Patients who are deemed suitable to be monitored at home are fitted with wristbands and given a doctor’s contact number. Information is obtained about close contacts in home and business social activities.
      4. On the 11th day of follow-up at home, the quarantine is terminated if the patients do not show symptoms. If they show symptoms, they have to call the doctor’s number given to them and provide information.

      Note If the Covid-19 positive person has not entered quarantine alone due to being a child or in need of care, if the caregiver’s test is negative, if the caregiver is vaccinated this time, he is placed in a 10-day contact quarantine if he is unvaccinated for 7 days.
