The rise of Turkish tourism state

19 12 2

Three countries with political similarities that failed in the war against the pandemic are Turkey, India, and Brazil. In all three, populist leaders govern them and the number of COVID-19 cases is out of control. In Turkey, similar to India, there has been a sharp rise in cases after the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) organized congresses and large gatherings.

Lacking the necessary vaccination rates, Turkey decided to try and get the pandemic under control again.

Political scientist Burak Kadercan, jokingly tweeted, "Turkey: The Rise of Tourism State," referring to the latest so-called complete lockdown announced by President Erdoğan. Turkey will be under full COVID-19 lockdown until May 17. However, a full lockdown does not really mean a full lockdown in Turkey.
