The effect of COVID-19 outbreak for the nature is amazing. As we know that the results are very destructive for human being because of the financial and social activity routine. But we have some observations that the nature gets positive results from the outbreak. This is the sample for this statement;
We have in quarantine around for 1.5 months as a world. Human activities such as tourism has been interrupted. Düden Waterfall of Antalya proves us that the rivers can refresh themselves. According to the last news, the water of Düden is cleaner than a month ago.
Actually it isn’t a shocked news because we hear some news’ such as the atmosphere is cleaning automatically in the world.
As we know that Turkey has a wealthy historical background thus the discoveries light up the history of this land. An underground city in Bayburt province was discovered by chance during a construction work.
Up to the examination of the site, it is 3000 years old and it belongs to Roman era. It is guessed that there are around 20 rooms in it. It is so large that some parts of the site haven’t been known yet. There are defensive gates in the site so we can think that it is a shelter in the region. We are going to find out more in future.
Every flag has a deep meaning for every nation in the world. A contest for the most beautiful flag was arranged a few days ago in Europe. The people voted for the flags of the world.
As a result, Turkey was voted as the most beautiful flag of the world. Spain was the second and USA was the third flag. I wanna thank everybody for their votes.
I feel a deep pride as a Turk with my flag and also I respect every flag. Because flags are the most valuable symbols of the countries. None of them can be humiliated or damaged.
Turkish history shaped this flag. As Turkish history is full of wars to defend the homeland, Red colour of blood is a suitable colour. We are ready to shed blood for our homeland and freeedom. Crescent and star are the most beautiful elements of the sky. Crescent and star have been using in Turkic world for centuries. Turkish flag is the reflection of Turkic history.

We are going back to 540 AD. A bubonic plague pandemic appeared in Egypt. It caused a big chaos in the region. The civilizations that were around the region were on red alert for the disease.
The bubonic plague outbreak reached Constantinople after a year. Disease caused a big chaos in East Roman Empire’s capital. The patients started to stay at homes and the business life stopped because of the disease. The historical records state that there was an outbreak in the capital. The society had to stay at home and the shops were closed. The life routine had been interrupted.
Does it look familiar? The present time has a similiarity with the past. The history is formed of the events that repeat in history.
