Health Minister Fahrettin Koca made statements about fake news regarding Corona Virus cases. Koca stated that there were statements on social media about new positive cases, and warned about posts aimed at panic on social media and some news. The point that Minister Koca drew attention to was the fake statement that today the tests of 2 cases were positive in Pamukkale University Hospital in Denizli and that 11 cases were suspicious in DDH.
After this, Koca stated, ” The example we experienced today was remarkable. The fake document was published in the morning. It was presented to the public as confidential. The aim was to create a loss of confidence. Combating fake news aimed at panic is part of fighting the virus. Panic is emotional. It is not reasonable. Panic puts society at risk to avoid. We must act with mind, not with emotion. The right sense of our people is as important as the organizational power of our state. table in Turkey is not identical to the table in other countries. Many countries have lost control. Now, the number of patients lost more than the diagnosis is explained. ”

Today, there are new suggestions from the Scientific Committee. Here, we will give our number of laboratories to 16, then to work in all major cities, and to the whole country.
