Turkey’s Scientific Advisory Board Fighting COVID-19

The Scientific Advisory Board was established four days after China alerted the World Health Organization of several cases of unusual pneumonia in the Hubei province. The Scientific Advisory Board’s first order of business was to stop the coronavirus from entering Turkey as long as possible, in order to prepare the country’s healthcare system and raise awareness among medical professionals and the general population.

Chaired by Health Minister Dr. Fahrettin Koca, this group of leading experts of infectious diseases, microbiology, virology, internal medicine, intensive care medicine and pulmonology continues to guide the Turkish government’s crisis response today.
