Turkey has "clearly averted a much bigger disaster", according to Dr Jeremy Rossman, Lecturer in Virology at the University of Kent. "Turkey fits in the category of several countries that responded fairly quickly with testing, tracing, isolation and movement restrictions," he told the BBC. "It's a fairly small club of countries that have been quite effective in reducing the viral spread."
As the virus multiplied, the authorities subtracted key pieces from the jigsaw of daily life - no trips to the coffee shop, no shopping in crowded markets, no communal prayers at the mosque. The over-65s and under-20s were locked down completely, weekend curfews were imposed, and major cities were sealed off.
Now, Turkey is in a process of opening up with full caution. Malls, coffee shops, work has started but social distancing and wearing of masks in much emphasis. Actually abiding by such is now obligatory and not wearing masks/ not keeping social distances are punishable by fees. Turkey's Health Minister -recently has the highest approval rates among any Turkish politician- often reminds people of the rules. Currently viewed as a success story, Turkey tries to keep that way and open up.
Mr. Volkan Bozkır of Turkey has been elected President of the UN General Assembly by the full vote of the 178 present UN-member states, all voting for him. He will take over from Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, the current General Assembly president, in September, when the annual session opens and will serve for a year.
Bozkır, 69, is a career diplomat who has served as Turkey's Minister of European Union (EU) Affairs and the Chief Negotiator for Turkish Accession to the EU. He was Turkey's Consul-General in New York between 1989 and 1992, and Turkey's permanent representative to the EU from 2005 to 2009.
