Stating that he has been actively involved in the field since the beginning of the pandemic, Prof. Dr. Reminding that there are 2 important approaches in the fight against the virus, Watermelon said:
“Either you will not get the virus, or if you do, you will fight the virus. Everyone can do this. Ventilating the environments you are in is one of the most important measures because this virus is transmitted by contact and air. The simplest way to prevent the virus from entering the body is to use a mask. When you wear your mask, you prevent the entry of the virus. “It’s not hard measures, I keep my distance, I wear my mask, I wash and disinfect my hands. When I go into crowded environments, I use a lozenge containing pomegranate peel extract. These have now become my routine and things I do without thinking. So we have to get used to living with it.”

Cardiologist Hakan Karpuz, explaining what people who caught the virus should pay attention to in the fight against the virus despite the measures, said, “If you have not been able to prevent the entry of the virus, you will learn to fight it. It is not very difficult to fight it; yes, there is no medicine for this virus and we need to put it in our heads clearly, but we are not helpless. sleep, nutrition and, if possible, a regular exercise is something everyone can do. Being vaccinated creates confidence in me, it can protect me against the virus, but it does not change the measures I take. Among these measures, for example, as I mentioned before, its effectiveness against the virus has been clinically proven, containing pomegranate peel extract. “You can benefit from preparations in lozenge form as well as nutritional supplements as an additional precaution. Scientific data show that we do not have a significant risk with the vaccine. Both vaccines have proven their competence in different studies conducted to date.”
