Social Vulnerability Index for COVID-19 Outbreak: The Case of Turkey
All over the world the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) out-break, which has caused one of the biggest global crises of recent years, are felt. The epidemic, which seriously threatens human life, also causes large-scale social changes and transformations. Countries try to control and manage the outbreak through different measures and practices. The studies carried out in this context are increasing day by day and the literature is formed by the existing experiences. Surely, managing the interdependent or related negative effects of the virus that affects all parts of the society requires multidisciplinary analysis. In this study, first, social vulnerability groups were exam-ined within the extent of the existing COVID-19 literature, and then social vulnerability analysis was carried out using the Social Vulner-ability Index (SoVI) method, which has been used more in disaster management. Then, social vulnerability analyse was performed based on Turkey provinces. Spatial information on the resilience of societies against the epidemic, their capacity to cope and their posi-tion in post-epidemic rehabilitation processes are presented and mapped. As a result of the study, it was observed that 4 of 81 provinc-es had very high level, 21 high level, 29 medium level, 16 low level and 11 very low level of vulnerability against the Covid-19 pandemic. Thus, in outbreak management, the priority regions have been determined and the evaluations regarding the qualitative needs of social groups have been made possible.
