Covid-19: 2,433 cases, 59 dead in Turkey

Turkish Minister of Health Fahrettin Koca wrote on Twitter that 5,035 tests have been conducted during the past 24 hours and 561 of these have posted positive for the coronavirus.

Accordingly, 15 more people have died of Covid-19 on Wednesday, death toll to 59. The all out number of those infected with the virus is 2,433.

The minister has once again called for an implementation of measures against the pandemic and included; “Let’s try to live with zero risk”.

While the people of Turkey mainly call for a curfew to contain the spread of the virus, Turkish authorities have only imposed a ban for citizens more than 65 years old and those with incessant illnesses to head outside.

The aid package reported by President Tayyip Erdoğan has been met with criticism as it concerns just big businesses and most of the people have to go work to earn a living.
