Turkey Announces New Restrictions To Stem 2Nd Virus Wave

Weeknight, full weekend curfew going into effect as of Tuesday, among other restrictions to fight 2nd wave of COVID 19.

Stepping up measures against a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Turkey on Monday introduced new restrictions, including a curfew on weeknights and a full weekend curfew.
"A general curfew will be applied every weeknight from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.," President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the public following a Cabinet meeting at the presidential complex in the capital Ankara.
There will also be a weekend-long curfew, from Friday 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday, he added.
In addition, people 20 and younger as well as those 65 and older are barred from using public transportation, he said, adding that restaurants will operate on a delivery-only basis.
Erdogan said the new restrictions will go into effect as of Tuesday.
On Nov. 20, Turkey had announced a partial weekend curfew from 8 p.m. to 10 a.m. and other restrictions nationwide to help stem the virus' spread.
As a second wave of the virus began this fall, countries worldwide have reintroduced restrictions in the interest of public health. -
