President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has told a group of his supporters that they should not shake hands since he might have brought them coronavirus.
“Actually, I might have brought you coronavirus so we should not shake hands. We have stopped shaking hands everywhere,” Erdoğan said on March 9 in Silivri.
One of his supporters, in return, said, “We accept everything that’s coming from you.”
Erdoğan was also cautious during his trip to Brussels, as he refrained from shaking hands with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, saying “corona.”
