SANLIURFA/LONDON – Doctors and local politicians in Turkey are voicing concern that the government is downplaying the scale of the resurgent coronavirus outbreak.
The latest official figures suggest there are around 1,700 new infections and around 60 deaths every day across the country. But doctors say the numbers do not add up, as they are seeing a much higher prevalence of the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease.
Dr. Kenan Gengeç runs a clinic in Sanliurfa in Turkey’s Anatolia region, one of the areas worst-hit by Turkey’s coronavirus resurgence. He is also a board member of the city’s Chamber of Doctors. Gengeç said the outbreak is far worse than the government is acknowledging. #myicmeler #voanews
