Speaking to reporters, Dr. Mustafa Sait Gönen, dean of Turkey's leading Istanbul University Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty, said: 

Today, we began the Phase 3 study of the Chinese origin vaccine from the Cerrahpaşa medical school.

Giving a break up of patients they attended to since March, he said, out of 335,000 patients who visited the facility; 27,000 were treated for COVID-19 and 77,000 tests were conducted.

This is an important day for the Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty. This struggle [against the virus] continues in Cerrahpaşa, as in other hospitals and in the world, he added.

I volunteered for this of my own will. Of course, we want this [virus] which is creating trouble for Turkey and the world to be eliminated soon.
