Turkey: AK Party Lawmaker Tests Positive For Virus

'My general health is good,' says ruling party's deputy parliamentary group chairman.

A leading lawmaker of Turkey's ruling party announced Tuesday that he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
"Due to a positive result from the last corona test which we have routinely done, the necessary medical process has been initiated today," Muhammet Emin Akbasoglu, the Justice and Development (AK) Party's deputy parliamentary group chairman, said on Twitter.
"Thank Allah, my general health is good," he said.
Akbasoglu called for prayers from his beloved friends.
His announcement comes after three opposition lawmakers tested positive Saturday for COVID-19.
The three are members of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP).
Turkey's COVID-19 cases reached 199,906 on Tuesday, including 173,111 recoveries and 5,131 deaths.
