Turkey on Sunday morning sent an air ambulance to bring home one of its citizens from Sweden who contracted coronavirus but was not given treatment.

The aircraft left Malmo Airport at 9 a.m. local time (0700GMT), along with the patient, Emrullah Gulusken, and his three children.

Daughters of the Turkish expat thanked President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Health Minister Fahrettin Koca for their initiative.

“We have heard your voice, our plane is on its way, we are coming to Sweden,” Koca had earlier tweeted, ordering to bring the 47-year-old and his children back.
