Municipalities vs. Erdoğan’s gov’t

There is no need to explain the depth of the crisis created by the coronavirus. The modern world has never seen anything like this and today all of our lives are on hold due to this pandemic. Our main priority today is the health crisis caused by the spread of this virus. The cursory results April survey on TurkiyeRaporu.com which is still being conducted, demonstrates that the awareness on the significance of coronavirus is much higher among the public compared to two weeks ago.

What Embassies Tweet About During COVID-19

Diplomacy is not immune to the Covid-19 virus. For the first time since the 17thcentury, diplomats and world leaders no longer meet face-to-face to address shared challenges or resolve shared grievances. The UN is closed, the WTO is out of session and G7 meetings take place through video conference calls. Embassies, traditionally tasked with maintaining ties between governments and peoples are also closed, or operating at a limited capacity. Ambassadors cannot open art exhibits; press attachés are unable to court journalists while consular departments are not open to the public. Nearly all mechanisms of modern diplomacy have come to a grinding halt.
