Turkey’s Strategy to COVID-19 deserves Additional Focus and less fake Information

A controversy lately stepped out on social websites on the New York Times, CNN and the BBC containing photos of Turkey within their policy of this COVID-19 pandemic. The sockets released photos of renowned Turkish temples in a way that appeared to portray Turkey as a hotspot of this outbreak.

Turkey is well worth speaking about, but because our response to the outbreak is applicable beyond our boundaries, much more so than others.

We can’t predict the entire extent to which COVID-19 will disperse within our boundaries. But luckily, Turkey started addressing the dangers early and while nobody was ready for the outbreak, the investments we have made in our health care infrastructure throughout the previous ten years and beyond have significantly improved our capability to handle it. In 2003, our nation underwent reforms aimed at making health care more accessible to a bigger share of the populace. As a consequence of those investments, Turkey’s percent of intensive care unit (ICU) beds per individual now is greater than most European nations, the USA and China. Healthcare in Turkey is now worldwide, meaning all Turkish citizens could get medical services at no charge. Each one of those factors is assisting us throughout this unprecedented global catastrophe.

There’s a whole lot of concern over financial markets concerning the long term financial threat which COVID-19 presents. Several authorities – Turkey’s involved – are trying to escape in front of the harm. Shortly after the virus struck Turkey, the authorities postponed debt obligations and decreased taxation for 11 of the main sectors. The authorities decided to offer all companies in the nation using a 36-month term loan, together with an adjusted rate of interest and six-month non-refundable interval.

In a private-sector standpoint, companies must keep the momentum they gained within the past couple of decades, instead of starting from scratch or around the rear foot in several weeks. To this end, there has been relief which the government seems to have found a strategy that permits the necessary measures to safeguard public health whilst not devoting the company. Even the Deputy Central Bank Governor even predict a top Q1 growth rate regardless of the coronavirus, after powerful tendencies in January and February and a sudden steadiness in consumption levels observed in March, also said he expects our market will bounce back relatively fast due to the robust growth we have experienced over the previous couple of decades. For the time being, all of us have to rely upon one another’s accountable actions together with the government’s answer to get us as fast as possible.

This is the most unprecedented scenario humankind has faced in generations. Major worldwide cities and whole nations have closed down and people are in grave risk. Turkey is doing its part – even closing down Istanbul’s brand new airport to all industrial travel for the near future. With 90 million passengers passing every year, this is a significant disturbance in the flow of flights and people worldwide. But in this age, measures like that — that only months or weeks ago seemed unthinkable — are the sole logical action.

When this is over, we could go back to traveling. We could continue business as normal and contact our own lives, altered though we may be. Until then, possibly when the papers share photographs of Turkey’s COVID-19 experience, they will also reveal our health employees, or even the community members that are en masse leaving meals from the street for anybody in the area who may be short on the fundamentals. Perhaps they will portray our regional police officers visiting ATMs for older residents to retrieve money for them. While no nation or person on Earth is resistant to the coronavirus, individuals that are rising to the occasion to perform their role will be making it possible for the planet to make it through this catastrophe.
