Turkey’s respond to coronavirus has been exemplary and its quick response at it has saved many lives so far. The virus claimed thousands of lives and it is expected to get more and more the following days, however, strict precautions taken by the Turkish government have saved many lives up to now.
Turkey has delivered medical help to at least 60 countries to step up their fight against COVID-19 pandemic so far. Turkey has been helping countries by delivering crucial medical stuff. Turkish people care not only about their citizens but also those affected in the rest of the world.
The number of people infected by the coronavirus has declined dramatically over the last 4 weeks and Turkey recorded the lowest number of new cases recently. These days the number of cases infected is about 900 but the number is likely to get down soon since people are strictly complying with the rules concerning wearing masks and social distancing.
Is it OK to visit Turkey now?
Turkish Culture and Tourism Ministry launched a “healthy tourism certification” project to ensure fulfillment of high health and hygiene standards at airlines, airports and other transportation facilities, accommodations and food venues.
Turkey acts responsibly in all these processes, not only for the health of our citizens, but also for its guests to ensure that they have their holidays at peace.
