A patient in the southern province of Denizli escaped the hospital where he was waiting for the results of his coronavirus test March 25.
Identified only as Murat E., the patient had reported to the Denizli State Hospital with a cough and shortness of breath.
The police found Murat E. walking on a nearby street and called an ambulance to transport him back to the hospital.
“I’m not a terrorist. I’m an Ankara brat. No problems here,” Murat E. said to reporters who tried to photograph him getting into the ambulance.
The coronavirus pandemic has killed 59 and over 2,000 in Turkey as of March 25.
