The country's Emergency Management Department reported that the death toll is 45,089 people.

Earlier it was known about 44 thousand victims of the earthquakes that began on February 6. According to Hurriyet, referring to officials, people died in the provinces of Kahramanmarash, Gaziantep, Sanliurfa, Diyarbakir, Adana, Adiyaman, Osmaniye, Hatay, Kilis, Malatya and Elazig.

An earthquake was again recorded in the central part of Turkey the day before. Its magnitude is 4. No damage or injuries were reported as a result of this quake.

As noted earlier, Antalya is preparing, despite the earthquakes, to receive guests in hotels from the very beginning of the holiday season. The tourism industry in the country has signed contracts in the winter months, because the disruption of the season will lead to significant losses for the industry.
