In a statement made on his social media account, Minister Koca said, "The Eris variant, which we know has a low virulence, was seen in 9 people in the examination carried out in our reference laboratory. They have foreign contacts and are in the same province. We will continue with the current measures and our daily life. The condition is widespread in other countries, and it was likely to occur in our country as well. We will protect our elders and chronic patients."
