Abstract

The outbreaks caused by infectious diseases have been one of the biggest issues of humanity throughout the history. The big outbreak diseases have affected people's lives since ancient times. The epimemics and pandemics that caused the death of millions of people in the past have emerged under various names in the modern period. After the Spanish Flu seen at the beginning of the 20th century, this time Covid-19 stood against human beings with the negativities it caused in both health and other areas. We think that the experiences obtained from both past and finished outbreaks and Covid-19 will be guiding for the future.
