In the statement made by the Ministry of Health, it was stated in the National Defense University (MSU) exam held on June 14, 2020 that the claims in the social media that "400 students were infected with COVID-19 and these students were quarantined" were unrealistic.
The statement includes claims that 14 students were infected with the National Defense University Candidate Nomination Exam held in some publications on June 2020, 400.
The planning and execution of all stages of the National Defense University Candidate Nomination Examination are carried out by the Presidency of the ÖSYM, and there is no inclusion in the matters such as planning, execution, staff assignment or allocation of places for the examination of the Ministry of National Defense.
It was learned that the claims in the media did not reflect the truth in the coordination with the relevant units of the Ministry of Health, and only 19 students and 12 supervisors who took the exam in the same class in Kocaeli were tested and 4 results were negative. It was said that it was announced to the public with respect.
