Committees in charge with Turkey’s COVID-19 mitigation strategy will meet next week.

Turkey will impose new coronavirus measures amid rising infections across the country, local daily Hurriyet Daily News reported.

The country’s interior ministry earlier issued a circular to all 81 provinces which focuses on the issues of risk management, social isolation, social distancing, controlling the spread of the virus, hygiene, the use of masks, and possible risks.

 

Turkey recorded 1,815 new coronavirus infections and 1,504 recoveries in the past 24 hours. It also confirmed the death of 72 people, taking the death toll to 9,296.

Committees in charge with Turkey’s COVID-19 mitigation strategy will meet next week to discuss topics of tracking, supervision and warnings, the interior ministry.

“The new measures should follow the committees’ meetings, but no date was given for their announcement,” the report said.
