The focus of rescue efforts is currently on those residents of the disaster zone who lack access to food and shelter during this cold winter. A few days prior, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan claimed that the situation following the earthquake is now under control.

According to the Turkish President, more than 20 million people have already evacuated the earthquake-affected regions, and hundreds of buildings have been reduced to rubble.
