Turkey recorded 1,527 new COVID-19 cases and 57 deaths in the past 24 hours, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said Sunday.
Some 96,097 tests were conducted and 1,102 patients recovered in the past day.
“The virus is separating us from our loved ones. The only way to put an end to this is by fighting in unity and cooperation,” Koca said, as he urged everyone to take precautions and prevent the spread.
Turkey has been seeing a resurgence in coronavirus infections for the past few weeks, with daily infection rates slowly but steadily climbing.
