Turkey’s investment in health pays off amid pandemic: Communications director


Thanks to Turkey’s reforms and investments in the health sector, many people benefited from the health services during the novel coronavirus outbreak, according to the country’s communications director.

“The Turkish government provides free universal health care, and made early investments in its health care infrastructure that are paying off now, Fahrettin Altun said in an article he penned for The Washington Times.

In the op-ed titled Turkish Government’s Strategy Turns the Tide of COVID-19, Altun said: “Our efforts are turning the tide: The daily growth of new cases recently dropped to the slowest pace since the first case was confirmed in early March, and daily hospital discharges are now far exceeding new cases.”
