Muzaffer Kayasan, a leukemia patient living in Istanbul, Turkey, was infected with covid-19 in November 2020 and has not tested negative since. The man has appealed to the authorities for help after spending 14 months in isolated.
Man has been isolated for 14 months and tested positive for coronavirus in up to 78 tests
“I test positive constantly. When we ask scientists and doctors, they tell us that my immune system is weakened, because I have leukemia, and they keep me alive for fourteen months with the drugs they prescribe. It is a very difficult process,” laments Kayasan, who had a bone marrow transplant three years ago, explains RT.
Muzaffer Kayasan has had to give up his former life
“I can’t hug my family, I can’t talk to anyone. There is nothing left of my social life, of my family life. Covid19 has wiped out my way of life,” laments Kayasan, who cannot be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
His wife and son visit him occasionally and always test negative for coronavirus. But what saddens the Turkish man the most is not being able to see his grandson in person, with whom he only communicates through a protective glass or by video call.
According to experts, the patient has no symptoms, but traces of the disease persist in his body. Because of his situation Kayasan urges the unvaccinated to inoculate themselves against the virus. “You have no right to kill others. This is immoral, dishonest,” he concludes.
