Like other industries, tourism and travel industry has been affected too much from global COVID-19 pandemic. The negative effects of pandemic can be easily seen in all tourism types starting from 3S (sea, sand, sun) tourism to religious tourism. According to World Religious Travel Association (WRTA) around 300 million tourists move internationally in religious tourism market. This study aimed to determine the perspectives of the local people living in Demre on religious tourism and to find out whether the local people living in the district were aware of the potential of religious tourism in the district. It also aimed to reveal whether there was a difference between the demographic characteristics of the local people and their perspectives on religious tourism. As a result of the logistic regression analysis conducted within the scope of the research, it was observed that people with high income levels and those working as managers had a low perspective on religious tourism.

The aim of this study is to investigate the nutritional approaches of student athletes studying at the university during the coronavirus outbreak period. Participants consisted of students studying and doing sports at the University. 446 students, 246 males and 200 females, participated in the study. Besides the personal form, students were filled the questionnaire testing questionnaire. Students voluntarily participated. The surveys were done on social media. Nutritional habits questionnaire consists of 12 questions. In the preparation of the survey questions, the questions proved validity of the researches which have been done on the subject before have been used. SPSS 23.00 package program was used in statistical analyses. Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was performed to test whether the data was normally distributed and it was determined that the data showed normal distribution. Independent t-test, paired t-test, unidirectional variance analysis and LSD tests were used in statistical operations. There was no significant difference in students' nutrition approaches by gender, both in the pre-outbreak period and in the outbreak period points (p> 0.05). Nutrition scores were significantly increased during the outbreak period (p <0.001). A significant difference was found between the students who felt bad before the epidemic and those who felt well before the epidemic and their nutritional scores according to the levels they felt (p <0.05). A significant difference was found between the pre-outbreak period and post-epidemic nutrition scores of the sports faculty students (p <0.05). During the coronavirus epidemic, university student athletes have either increased their nutritional opportunities or have changed their eating habits positively to keep their immune systems strong or both. The fact that sports faculty students have better nutrition compared to other faculty students can be attributed to their taking courses in nutrition, health and similar. It is recommended to give lectures or seminars on nutrition to athlete students.

Objectives: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a viral pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, a member of the Coronavirinae subfamily. Myalgia is one of the most prevalent symptoms. The aim of this study is to investigatewhether there is a change in FDG uptake of the muscles and bone marrow of patients with COVID-19 infection. Method: From august 2020 to december 2020, a total of 1260 oncological FDG PET-CT studies were performed inour center. Among 242 oncology patients whose SARS-CoV-2 PCR results were available, the data of 32 patients with concurrent SARS-CoV-2 positivity or previous disease history and the data of 36 covid negative patients were analyzed retrospectively. Patients tested positive COVID-19 were divided into 3 groups (14 days, 1 month and 3months) according to the time interval between the active period of the disease and FDG PET-CT imaging. FDGuptake in paraspinal, deltoid, psoas, gluteal muscles and also sacrum of each patient were measured separately, the SUVmax and the SUVmean values were recorded. The FDG uptake in paraspinal, deltoid, psoas, gluteal muscles and sacrum of the covid-negative patient group were measured and recorded the same way as the studygroup. Other imaging findings that may be related to COVID-19 were also noted. Mann-Whitney U-test was used toassess differences in metabolic parameters between the groups. Statistical significance was defined as p<0.05.Patients were asked about their muscle pain in the active phase of the COVID-19 and the pain rating scale used torate the intensity of the pain. Results: Sixty eight patients with a mean age of 56±15 (5-80) years were included in the study. There were 32females and 36 males. Median SUVmean and SUVmax values in the psoas muscle of 15 patients whose timeperiod between the SARS-CoV-2 PCR test positivity and FDG PET-CT imaging was less than 15 days were significantly higher than the median SUVmean and SUVmax values in the psoas muscle of covid-negative patientgroup (p: 0.04 and 0.016, respectively). Moreover, the bone marrow SUVmean and SUVmax values obtained from the sacrum were also found to be higher in this group (p: 0.036 and 0.016, respectively).In the patient group whosePET-CT imaging was performed 1 month after SARS-CoV-2 PCR test positivity, the SUVmax values obtained from the psoas muscle were significantly higher than the SUVmax values in the covid negative group (p: 0.043). There was no significant difference between the SUV parameters obtained from the muscle groups and bone marrow of patients who were tested for SARS-CoV-2 positivity or with a known history of COVID-19, and the SUV parametersobtained from covid-negative patients. Conclusion: Since the disease is new, there are many questions about thecourse of the disease and its early and late findings. Despite being a small sample, in our study, it was shown thatsome COVID-19 patients in the early stage of the disease may show increased FDG uptake in some muscle groups and also in bone marrow.

Objectives: Our aim in this study is to evaluate non-diagnostic computed tomography (CT) images obtained for attenuation purposes and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) images in myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) in patients with a history of COVID-19 known. Methods: The information of 287 patients who had MPS imaging with pharmacological stress in our department between October 2020 and January 2021 were retrospectively evaluated from the hospital information system. The patients were divided into two groups according to the only ground glass density on CT and the presence of Tc-99m methoxy isobutyl isonitrile (MIBI) involvement with ground glass density. The date when the patients were diagnosed with COVID-19 was recorded. Results: Twenty-two patients had a history of COVID-19. There was an average of 74±46 (15-186) days between the diagnosis of COVID-19 and MPS. Ground glass density was observed on non-diagnostic CT in 11 patients. Ten patients had increased Tc-99m MIBI uptake consistent with ground glass areas. The median time between diagnosis and MPS was calculated as 50.5 days in patients with Tc-99m MIBI involvement in the lung and 63.5 days in patients without involvement, but according to the time interval between diagnosis and MPS, there was no significant difference between them (p> 0.05). Conclusions: Although imaging models corresponding to clinical improvement in patients diagnosed with COVID- 19 usually occur after the 2nd week of the disease, they may continue for a long time after the diagnosis, moreover, increased radiopharmaceutical uptake may accompany this.
