A 23-year-old Turkish man from the Black Sea province of Rize built a wooden treehouse to practice social distancing amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Tahsin Öztürk said he will not leave the 8-square-meter studio apartment until the threat of the pandemic had gone."I have built a safe zone against coronavirus. I started to live here and find peace of mind while staying away from the crowds. I enjoy the view from my house and drink my tea" Öztürk said. He added that the first thing he does while receiving few guests is offering some Turkish-made cologne (kolonya), a traditional ethanol-based scented disinfectant. Colognes made with 80% alcohol, are being embraced for their disinfectant properties.
