Turkey’s Health Ministry brought three Turkish citizens who were infected with the coronavirus in Tanzania to the country for treatment.
The citizens, identified as Halil A., Eyyüp K. and Oğuzhan A., were taken to Istanbul by an air ambulance early Tuesday.
They will be treated at a hospital in Istanbul. The three men had applied to Turkish authorities for treatment in Turkey earlier.
Turkey, which offers free-of-charge air ambulance services for its citizens, occasionally brings COVID-19 patients from pandemic hot spots around the world for treatment.
