Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman and interior minister both declared on Saturday that they had affected by the coronavirus.
Indeed, Presidential spokesman, Ibrahim Kolin, said in a tweet that he had reached the final stage of coronavirus treatment however he didn’t say how long he has been sick, and he wrote: I am going very well.
The declaration of Kolin appears just hours after Interior Minister, Suleyman Soylu, reported that he was hospitalized Friday with his wife and daughter, and they also tested positive for the virus.
In fact, the two men frequently assemble with Erdogan, who was moving on Saturday to Izmir to examine the damage from an earthquake that caused the death of more than 30 people in Turkey and Greece.
Furthermore, Erdogan whose environment is daily tested for the virus hasn’t shown any signs of illness and retains its punishing program that often includes many quotidian televised speeches.
Turkey that surpassed this week 10,000 coronavirus deaths, has refused to reintroduce the lockdown procedures that have being revealed by countries such as France and Greece.
