In-person education  will begin as scheduled in Turkey, Koca says

Face-to-face education will begin as scheduled in Turkey, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said Wednesday, and unvaccinated adults will undergo frequent COVID-19 testing.

“It is not possible for us to compromise face-to-face education … We will take necessary measures to protect students and their families,” Koca said in a speech following the coronavirus science council meeting.

Vaccination is a social responsibility that cannot be left up to choice anymore, Koca said adding that teachers, instructors and families of the students should be vaccinated.

“Vaccine should be a must for business and education to continue, the people who are not vaccinated should present negative PCR test results regularly,” Koca said.

Daily cases have surged from a low of just over 4,000 in early July to over 20,000 for the last two weeks since authorities relaxed pandemic-related restrictions.
