Istanbul diver İsa Şahintürk recently recorded underwater footage in the Bosphorus where solid waste, including gloves and masks used for COVID-19 protection, was highly visible.

Şahintürk, who’s been diving around Istanbul for three years, hasn’t noticed any difference in the levels of solid waste pollution in the water during the COVID-19 isolation period.

The diver noted that it’s possible to keep up with the outside world’s agenda by observing the waste in the water, noting personal protective equipment floating in the Bosphorus.
