Covid-19 came to Turkey late-March 11-but soon every corner of the country was signed. In a month's time all 81 provinces were affected. That was one of the world's fastest-growing outbreaks-more than China or the UK. There were fears that the death toll would rise, turning Turkey into another Italy, the hardest hit country at the time.
Turkey has managed to reduce the number of COVID-19 regular cases down below 1,000 in just over a month, a significant accomplishment as the country seeks to balance 'reopening' with renewed protection measures . Health officials in Turkey have consistently advised the public to obey three rules: wearing face masks, adhering to social distancing and staying vigilant about personal hygiene, warding off a new wave .
Turkey managed to control Corona
Turkey managed to do a number of important matters that helped in developing the health field and its health care in the face of the Corona virus. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan inaugurated the huge "Basaksehir Cham and Sakura" hospital in central Istanbul in full capacity with the presence of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe via video technology, where the hospital was built in cooperation between the Japanese company Sujitz and Turkish companies. The hospital plays a major role in treating people with the new coronavirus. The hospital has more than 2,600 beds, compared to 1,400 beds in the Fujita University Health Hospital, which is the largest hospital in Japan in capacity, located in Toyoaki in Aichi Prefecture in the central part of the country.
Turkey has been able to design a mobile application developed by the Ministry of Health as one of the most important needs of the controlled social life period. The app is free. The mobile application was developed to guide individuals to covid 19 and to reduce the risks individuals may face.
