“For the first time in a long time, we see a serious increase in the number of infections”, - the head of the department, Fahrettin Koca, wrote on Twitter.
According to him, the country must make every effort to prevent the further spread of infection and an increase in the number of cases. Previously, tourists in Turkey have already been banned from self-imposing food on buffets.
According to the minister, 1,083 new cases of COVID-19 were registered in Turkey on August 4 alone. 18 people died, 994 recovered and were discharged from medical institutions.
The Russian Federation resumed air traffic with Turkey on August 1. On the same day, the borders of Tanzania, Great Britain and Abkhazia were opened for Russians.
Let us note that immediately after the announcement of "affordable" Turkey, the prices for air tickets to this country have doubled compared to 2019.
