Have you treated patients who have been infected twice? Pulmonologist Cihan Çelik: Yes, occasionally. If the infection was a year ago, you have to be very careful.
Older patients in particular, who had not yet been vaccinated after their first infection, lulled themselves into a false sense of security, met friends again and got infected again. Unfortunately, older people lose their immunity more quickly. This does not only affect people with an easy course. There was a patient who we had to treat for the second time in the hospital because of Covid-19. We swallowed. There were memories of everything that we have already experienced here. The idea of having to treat all patients again is terrible. We therefore hope that the vaccinations will go ahead quickly and that they will be refreshed in good time if necessary.
