Turkey Upset over classification as a Covid 19 High Risk Area

Turkey once again has criticized the German Government’s classification as a corona risk area / country.

“In our opinion, such a classification does not in any way match the objective situation and Turkey does not deserve such a classification,” said the Turkish embassy in Berlin at the request of the German Press Agency and “the same goes for the travel warning, of course.”

The German Government had classified Turkey along with 130 other countries as a corona risk area on Monday and German tourists that are arriving from a risk area in Germany can expect to be in quarantine for 14 days.

For those countries, lifting the travel warning for more than 160 countries outside the European Union – including Turkey – is currently unlikely.

Turkey has reported yesterday over 1,300 new Covid-19 infections within 24 hours which is higher as Germany, France and Italy daily combined.

Turkey, the third most popular holiday destination for Germans after Spain and Italy, is pressing for the travel warning to be lifted. The message from the embassy states that “an exemplary achievement” has been achieved in combating the pandemic.

“Many EU members were far more affected by the pandemic than Turkey, and according to WHO statistics, the number of active Covid-19 cases in Turkey is much lower than in many EU countries.” The embassy also referred to 39,000 intensive care beds in the country and the number of deaths is lower than in Germany with approximately the same population.

“The holiday resorts were just as little affected as the German coastal regions,” the statement said. It was difficult to understand the scientific criteria on the basis of which Turkey was classified as a risk area.

“Accordingly, we hope and expect that the German Government will lift Turkey’s classification as a risk area as well as the travel warning for Turkey as soon as possible.”
