Abstract

The continuous development of technology and various factors have brought a different

dimension to the ongoing disasters throughout history of humanity. Disasters are no longer just

natural-induced, man-made disasters are also happening. The Covid-19 epidemic we are

experiencing nowadays is also an obvious example of this situation. Due to the current importance

of the subject, it is aimed to provide a guide on risk assessment related to disasters and a perspective

in order to determine the strategies for reducing the risks of disasters in this study. For this purpose,

risks related to the Covid-19 epidemic were analyzed with key success factors (Technological,

Social, Legal, Environmental, Economic, Functional, Institutional, Political) in the disaster

management cycle using the Fuzzy FMEA method. When the results of study were analyzed, it is

seen that the Covid-19 epidemic has high risk in terms of all key success factors (Technological,

Social, Legal, Environmental, Economic, Functional, Institutional, Political).
