The economic measures taken are insufficient

Mostly the curfew is compelling

In the process of staying at home, sports activities (56.4%), reading books (51.3%) and watching movies-TV series (46.2%) activities come to the fore.

GYİAD: The time for “returning to normal” will be shorter if the measures are observed
Evaluating the results of the survey, GYİAD Board President Fuat Pamukçu said: “When we look at the responses of our members to the survey, we see that the majority of the respondents think that the measures taken should be expanded “in terms of economy”. The psychological and social effects of the pandemic will continue to decrease over time. We anticipate that the time for “returning to normal” will also be shortened if the measures taken are observed.”
Fuat Pamukçu continued, “As we always say, our country should continue to focus on structural reforms in order to gain an advantage after this crisis. The young population should be brought into the economy, with a particular focus on employment. As GYİAD, we continue to do our part in this regard. We have full trust in our country and we think that we will get through this process as soon as possible.”
