Two Turkish doctors arrived in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s capital on Thursday to assist in the country’s efforts against the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Bilgin Sait, head of the COVID-19 center at the American Hospital in Istanbul, and Dr. Siran Keske, an infectious diseases specialist at the same facility, will work with staff at the Sarajevo General Hospital.

They will deliver lectures detailing their experiences in treating virus patients and guide doctors and medical workers on the treatment of the disease.

The Turkish doctors arrived at the invitation of Haris Vranic, the health minister of Sarajevo Canton, who requested them to visit the 181 COVID-19 patients being treated at the hospital.

Collaboration between the American Hospital and Sarajevo General Hospital has been ongoing during the pandemic, with doctors regularly holding videoconferences to discuss COVID-19 treatment plans and related matters.
