Despite the success table said and drawn in combating the pandemic, the figures in the statements made every evening show that the truth does not match what is said. The first thing that comes to mind is that the reason for this negativity in the table is the easing of restrictions, in other words, the transition to controlled freedom. Of course, the realization of controlled freedom plays an important role in the jump in numbers. However, I think that explaining the incident only with the transition to controlled freedom means taking into account one aspect of the incident. Because there is a common opinion in the world about the importance of vaccination in combating the epidemic. As such, all the possibilities at hand should be directed to vaccination and the majority of the society should be administered one and a second dose of vaccine in a short time. However, it is noteworthy that the practice of vaccination has slowed down in recent weeks. In an earlier article, I asked why vaccination suddenly slowed down, and I attributed this to the supply problem in vaccine supply. However, in the statements made, on the one hand, it was stated that 50 million doses of vaccine connection was made with China and shipment started, in addition, 4.5 million doses of vaccine were made in another vaccine, and the vaccination campaign would accelerate by the end of March.
Of course, the things to be done and the measures to be taken regarding vaccination will be implemented. Those concerned may be in an intense effort in this regard. However, despite the intense effort, it is seen that only 5 million 40 thousand 336 can be reached in the second dose application in vaccination. In the meantime, it is stated that a total of 13 million 58 thousand 60 was reached in the first and second dose of vaccines. In short, it is not possible to say that a serious point has been reached in the vaccination campaign, despite all vaccine connections and the numbers reported to be supplied as of March 21, 2021 at 11:32. Because as a result, the number of people who were able to administer one and a second dose of vaccine is around 8 million.
While vaccination is progressing like this, the statements made in recent days are in dimensions that will make the society uneasy. According to the figures announced about the epidemic on March 18, the number of cases exceeded 20 thousand, while the number of patients recovered remained at 18 thousand 615, and the number of those who died was announced as 81, increasing every day. The next day, on March 19, the number of new cases exceeded 21 thousand, and the number of those who recovered remained at 18 thousand 119. The number of those who died continued to increase and reached 87. On Saturday, March 20, the number of new cases remained above 21 thousand, and the number recovered was announced as 18 thousand 815. Meanwhile, with the serious increase in the number of deaths, it was 95. While the number of deaths has decreased to the 60's, it has suddenly increased and approached 100.
I'm not transmitting all of this to do disaster hackers. My job consists of drawing attention to the fact that the figures announced have reached alarming proportions. Because the figures show that the epidemic has escalated again. With this progress, we see that it will not be possible for us to go to normal life, and the transition to a controlled normal life suddenly increases the cases. As such, we need to see that the epidemic cannot be prevented by obeying the rules of the society. In order for a controlled normal life to work, vaccination campaigns should be accelerated and the number of people who received first and second doses of vaccine should at least reach 40-50 million. In short, the vast majority of the society needs to be immunized, and vaccination is the way to go. This is what it looks like. If those concerned have a different view and opinion on this subject, they should explain the truth they know. Because it will be harder to keep the community under house arrest longer. Beyond that, it will become increasingly impossible to meet the economic dimension of the business. In this way, the vaccination dimension of the work needs to be overcome and it is useful to give clear information to the society on this issue.
