“For over a year now, the COVID-19 pandemic has been raging around the world, including in our country. From the first day of the pandemic, the state has been fighting this infection by mobilizing all its resources. With regret I want to note that so far no effective drug against the virus has been obtained," Chief infectious disease specialist of the Ministry of Health Tayyar Eyvazov said, APA reports.
According to him, in such a situation, an important method of dealing with a pandemic is its prevention: “If in the first months this was limited only by the observance of various hygiene rules and quarantine measures, now vaccines are being introduced, which are a more effective and reliable means of saving people. I would like to remind you that it was vaccination that defeated smallpox, which at one time caused the mass death of people. "
T. Eyvazov noted that the goal of the vaccination carried out in the country is to keep the spread of infection, achieve a significant reduction in morbidity and minimize mortality: “However, there are those who are trying to cast a shadow over these measures of the state. In recent days, rumors have been spread on social networks that people who have been vaccinated are experiencing complications, become paralyzed, and some are dying. All these messages are untrue. So far, the Ministry of Health has not received any information about such complications in vaccinated people. Once again, we inform the population that if any strong reaction occurs after vaccination, they must go to the appropriate medical institutions."
