Here is a link to a BBC report at the end of May, Coronavirus: How Turkey took control of Covid-19 emergency https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52831017 in the report, Dr Jeremy Rossman, Lecturer in Virology at the University of Kent, is quoted “Turkey fits in the category of several countries that responded fairly quickly with testing, tracing, isolation and movement restrictions,” he told the BBC. “It’s a fairly small club of countries that have been quite effective in reducing the viral spread.”
