Plane crashes after landing in Istanbul 21 injured

A plane flying into Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen airport from Izmir skidded off the runway after landing and crashed on Wednesday, injuring 21 people, Turkish officials said.

The plane split into three pieces after what Transport Minister Cahit Turhan called a rough landing, adding that there were no fatalities. He said flights waiting to land in Sabiha Gokcen were diverted to Istanbul Airport.

A spokeswoman for Pegasus Airlines confirmed the crash but did not provide further details, Reuters reports.

Istanbul Governor Ali Yerlikaya said the plane was carrying 171 passengers and six crew members from Turkey’s western province of Izmir.

Emergency response teams had taken 21 people to hospital and evacuation efforts were continuing, Yerlikaya said. Footage on Turkish media showed the plane’s fuselage, as well as a section of it near the tail, had broken off. Passengers were being led out as the plane lay on a patch of grass next to the runway. Dozens of emergency response personnel were taking passengers out of the plane and carrying them away on stretchers.

Earlier footage showed part of the exterior of the plane had caught on fire, which Anadolu said was put out by firefighters.

Turkish Airlines said it canceled all its flight in and out of Sabiha Gokcen on Wednesday.

TABIB Coronavirus doesnt have deadly effect on children younger than 10

“There are 7 varieties of coronavirus. From these, 4 are the diseases causing nasal discharge in people and take their course with such easy fly symptoms as a sore throat. Other varieties of this disease which were detected in the recent past and are spreading now have caused epidemics”, said Vasif Aliyev, head of TABIB’s Working Group, member of Operative Task Force under Cabinet of Ministers of Azerbaijan, APA reports.

He said there is no standard, specific, antivirus treatment method for any of these varieties: “Only the symptomatic treatment is applied to them. There is neither vaccine nor antiviral medicinal preparation for these diseases. Just some medicinal preparations are used for treatment, but their efficiency hasn’t been completely proved”.

V. Aliyev noted that according to the statistics, this virus doesn’t have deadly effect on children younger than 10: “Mainly the elderly people, the people suffering from a chronic disease – diabetes, chronic kidney, heart and liver failure, as well as the people have undergone organ transplantation, and the people suffering from oncology diseases bear this disease more heavily due to their weak body resistance. Some patients can recover in two weeks, but others can suffer more heavily, at the same time there is a likeliness of the repeated contraction of the virus. Similarly to the repeated contraction of the flu virus, the coronavirus can also be caught repeatedly. This is a case for all viruses”.
