The Interior Minister has reported that 370,482 tents have been set up in 332 “tent cities” and that 1.5 million earthquake survivors have been housed there.

In addition to that, 329,960 people have been provided accommodation in other provinces.

The Education Minister has said that over 202,817 students have been relocated to other cities to continue their studies.

However, the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party has released a video on the first month anniversary of the quake, criticising the government’s response and accusing it of not mobilising enough people to coordinate search and rescue efforts.

There have also been complaints on social media about the lack of basic necessities, such as water, blankets and tents, and medical supplies.
