Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said on Twitter: “We must return to the seriousness we had in the early months of the pandemic against the danger posed by the omicron variant and the spread of the virus.”

He once again urged people to use masks and keep social distance.

On Friday, Koca said that most of the rise in omicron cases was seen in Istanbul, accounting for 52.3% of all cases reported nationwide in the past 10 days.
