Local, regional figures

Health Minister Fahrettin Koca also released the latest weekly infection rates across the country’s various regions.

Sharing the data for May 22-28 on Twitter, Koca said the case numbers are consistently falling.

“The biggest drops in the number of cases per 100,000 people were seen in Erzurum, Tunceli, Kastamonu, Samsun and Kocaeli. The positive course continues,” Koca said on Twitter.

The number of cases per 100,000 people was 89 in the metropolis of Istanbul – home to nearly one-fifth of Turkey’s population – and also 115 in the capital Ankara and 47 in Izmir on the Aegean.

The provinces of Hatay, Osmaniye and Adana had the lowest COVID-19 infections per 100,000 people.

Turkey is currently imposing a curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m on weekdays and Saturdays, and a full lockdown on Sundays.

Since December 2019, the pandemic has claimed over 3.55 million lives in 192 countries and regions, with more than 170.8 million cases reported worldwide, according to the US-based Johns Hopkins University.
