Turkey’s health minister accepted Friday a wear-a-mask challenge on Twitter posed by the head of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus tagged top doctor Fahrettin Koca and invited him with a #WearAMask hashtag.
Koca responded from his Twitter account:
Thank you Mr Director-General @DrTedros for your message. I urge all countries to wear a mask, practice social distancing and follow hygiene rules. My dear friend @hans_kluge, I know you are with us #WearAMask https://t.co/B3309dPfG2— Dr. Fahrettin Koca (@drfahrettinkoca) August 7, 2020
Koca tagged the WHO’s Regional Director for Europe Hans Henri Kluge and said: "My dear friend @hans_kluge, I know you are with us #WearAMask"
The WHO launched the challenge earlier this week.
