Despite an initial flirt with pandemic denialism, Turkey may well be able to take some pride in its handling of the Covid-19 crisis. Yet, coronavirus continues to impose a huge cost on a nation already grappling with faltering economic growth, deepening existing political and social divides. With us to examine the myriad impacts of Covid-19 on Turkey are Monash University politics and international relations expert Dr William Gourlay and Asia Institute Turkish politics researcher Dr Tezcan Gümüş. Presented by Ali Moore.
