The impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives in Turkey and across the world.

Officially declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation in March 2020, everyone’s primary concern is to minimise the spread of the virus, to mitigate its effects and to protect those most vulnerable in society.
