Can I go to Turkey: Reviews of tourists and the opinion of Ministry of Health

The decision on the trip must be taken independently. can not be considered, that the virus can "catch" only in Turkey or Cyprus. Enterovirus infections are quite common among children, and they can be caught anywhere.

Also, be aware, that virtually every child faces a child with enterovirus infection, so panic, bloated around Coxsackie virus, somewhat exaggerated.

Turkish authorities and the Russian Ministry of Health official sources say:

  • The infection is not widespread and cases of disease during the period 2017-2018 gg. increased insignificantly;
  • The seasonal increase in the number of cases associated with the spread of infection in a humid environment (in particular, in basins);
  • The elementary rules of hygiene to help prevent infection.

note! The Ministry of Health recommends to the stabilization of the epidemiological situation to limit the admission of children in pools and in the "Baby Club", tk. these places are "hotbeds" of viruses and infections.

Preventive measures, warning virus infection, include adherence to the simple sanitary standards. recommended:

  • Regularly wash your hands, use antiseptics;
  • Wash with soap and all purchased fruits and vegetables;
  • There is only in the audited locations or prepare meals;
  • To avoid possible large crowds;
  • Eating outdoors;
  • Swim in the sea, and not in the common pools.

If you adhere to these simple rules, the risk of infection of enterovirus infection is minimized.

Reviews of tourists to Turkey varied:

  • Irina: "Rested in Antalya. Patients seen. Only themselves bathed in the sea, consistently used antiseptics. Fruits carefully wash, and the intense heat trying to outstay in the room ".
  • Tatyana: "Rested in Turkey, Oasis hotel. Son caught there this sore - five days, the disease manifests itself actively. Now there was only a rash, I hope, it shall not remain scars. In Turkey, no longer go ".

The rest of the reviews on travel forums have a similar character: recover from a virus vying to discourage tourists from visiting Turkish resorts, and other travelers say, that, subject to the basic rules of hygiene to avoid infection possible, and in this respect the Turkish hotels are not dangerous or Crimean beach in Sochi.
