Eid al-Adha during quarantine in Azerbaijan: sheep to be sold online

Azerbaijanis will not be going to the market this year to buy sheep for Eid al-Adha – they’ll order them online.

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus, a new portal for online orders of sacrificial sheep has been commissioned in the country.

The website www.qurbanliq.kendden.az will field orders until July 31. The price will be 11.50 AZN for each kilogram of cut meat.

This project is being implemented by OJSC “Aqrar Tədarük və Təchizat” under the ministry of agriculture within the framework of the project “From village to city”.

When ordering, citizens themselves will choose the place where they will pick up the sacrificial sheep, as well as the date and time. The citizen will get a text message with information about the order and citizens will be able to pick up the sacrificial sheep at different points of sale in the cities of Baku and Sumgait.

The Azerbaijani Ministry of Internal Affairs has also made an appeal to citizens in connection with the holiday:

“This year, because of the pandemic, people will not be permitted to gather en mass to buy and butcher sacrificial animals, nor to get the meat cut or sold at any place that has not been specified for this purpose. In accordance with the requirements of the quarantine regime, you must go through the new sales portal when purchasing sacrificial sheep online.”

The online sale of sheep has provoked different reactions on social media. Many comments have been sarcastic:

“As far as I understand, Aqrar Tədarük və Təchizat OJSC is creating an inventory of the religious population in Azerbaijan. Otherwise, why would citizens be required to provide their FİN-code ID, as well as the phone number when ordering sheep?

Maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about, and sheep are chosen according to the FİN code?

P.S. despite the fact that you order online, they don’t need an email address. And you have to pick up the meat yourself. And I don’t understand what aspect of this is ‘online’”.

“Eid al-Adha sheep are going to be sold online. If the internet is a trick of Satan, will these sacrifices be accepted?”

“What a great time we’re living in. On the eve of Eid al-Adha, sheep are being sold online. It’s like buying a drone on AliExpress…”

Turkish nasal spray kills coronavirus in 1 minute

The outbreak of COVID-19, which has now affected the whole world, put many microbiologists to work finding solutions. Report informs referring to the Daily Sabah.

While health care professionals labor intensely in laboratories to develop tests, vaccines, and treatments, a nasal spray has been developed at Bursa's Uludağ University that can kill the coronavirus in just one minute.

The solution named Genoxyn, which ultimately kills the virus, was developed by associate professor Dr. Şehime Gülsün Temel, operator Dr. Ahmet Ümit Sabancı, and Dr. Cüneyt Özakın, a faculty member of Uludağ University's Medical Microbiology Department.

The researchers collaborated with academics from Uludağ and Çukurova universities to test the developed solution's antimicrobial and antiviral effects. The study found that the solution prevented the reproduction of bacteria and viruses.

Sabancı said he had been carrying out his studies on protection from disease before the coronavirus pandemic started. "With Cüneyt Özakın, we showed that the solution has antibacterial activity, and after the pandemic began, we thought about whether we could develop this solution to contribute to (the fight against) COVID-19. So, we refined a new oral and nasal spray and sent it to biocompatibility tests," he said.

"It was already known that the transmission points of the virus are the mouth and nose, and our studies determined that the solution both killed and cured the virus on the mouth and nose tissue. The death of the virus in a short time means preventing its entry into the cells and reducing the virus's number. If the solution can prevent contamination, it will be a good protector for us," Sabancı explained.

Meanwhile, Temel proved the solution kills the virus within a minute and, most importantly, showed that the solution does not damage people's epithelial cells in their mucous membranes. "We have even shown that it has a healing effect on these cells. Therefore, this means that it is safe to use as it does not harm human cells," she said.
