We are deeply saddened by the loss of our citizen, Dr. Halil Onalt and another local citizen, whom we lost to Covid-19 pandemic despite increasing measures being taken every day. Dr Onalt was continuing his career in Istanbul. May God rest the souls of all those who passed away.  I am sending my condolences to their grieving families and loved ones.  

I would like to remind everyone that every citizen should show maximum sensitivity to personal precautions for the health of our society.  

I reiterate my belief that we will be successful against this pandemic with the efforts of our healthcare professionals and with the adherence of everybody to the measures.
