World Corona crisis: Turkey imposes nationwide curfew over Bayram

Corona crisis: Turkey imposes nationwide curfew over Bayram

In Turkey, the first country-wide curfew began during the corona pandemic on Saturday night. It came into effect at midnight and is to continue until Tuesday night during the Bayram holidays at the end of Ramadan.

Among other things, the government wants to use the regulation to prevent the family visits common to Bayram and thus prevent the further spread of Covid-19. Turkey has been reporting declining casualties for some time and has started to loosen restrictions. Among other things, hairdressers and shopping centers were allowed to reopen last week.

Bakeries, clinics and pharmacies remain open

On Saturday there are shopping opportunities for a few hours before the festivities. Bakeries and suppliers of sweets as well as clinics, pharmacies and other service providers classified as important may remain open for the entire period. Common prayers in mosques are also still prohibited at Bayram.

In some cities and provinces, the government had already banned long weekends and long weekends in the past few weeks.

Turkey had waived longer and nationwide curfews so as not to further burden the troubled economy. Complete bans only applied in groups, for example to seniors aged 65 and over. With the easing of the measures, however, they can also leave the house on specified days – for example on Sunday.

Health Minister Fahrettin Koca reported that around 155,000 people in Turkey have been infected with the corona virus so far. 27 people had died in the past 24 hours. According to official information, there were a total of around 4,300 deaths.
