Published on : Tuesday, May 19, 2020

With 70 countries, Turkey has started carrying out telephone diplomacy to inform them about the health infrastructure of the country over the pandemic, the culture and tourism minister mentioned this Sunday.

Turkey in a certification system detailed that for tourism, the country is now a safe place regarding measures against COVID-19, said Mehmet Nuri Ersoy in a written statement.

The country’s Culture and Tourism Ministry launched a “healthy tourism certification” project to make sure the implementation of high health and hygiene standards at all its airlines, airports and other transportation facilities, hotels and restaurants, the ministry had said earlier.

“Turkey acts responsibly in all these processes, not only for the health of our citizens, but also for its guests to ensure that they have their holidays at peace,” Ersoy noted.

Also, to those 70 countries, Turkey had sent letters of intent who in recent years had preferred Turkey the most as a tourist destination — including Germany, the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Japan, Russia, and Czech Republic.
The letters had information on passenger and employee health and safety, steps taken in terms of facilities and in transportation, provincial and district level health institutions’ lists and capacities, the minister added.
As the virus erupted on December 2019 in Wuhan, it has spread to at least 188 countries and regions.

There are at present over 4.68 million confirmed global infections with over 313,000 deaths, while recoveries exceeded 1.71 million so far.
