Turkey Eases Coronavirus Measures

Monday 1 June 2020

ANKARA (Reuters) — Turkey re-opens restaurants, cafes and parks on Monday and lifts inter-city travel curbs as the country eases restrictions taken to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

President Tayyip Erdogan’s government has been gradually easing the restrictions for the past few weeks, as authorities say the outbreak is now under control. Restaurants, cafes, gyms and swimming pools, beaches, parks, libraries and museums are set to resume operations from Monday.

Day-care centres and kindergartens are also reopening, but restrictions on the movements of those aged over 65 and fewer than 18 will continue.

The coronavirus outbreak has claimed more than 4,500 lives in the country, and infected more than 160,000.
