Turkey President Erdogan announces to partially lift COVID-19 restrictions June 1

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced on Thursday that a series of restrictions, which were previously imposed to curb the COVID-19 pandemic, would be partially lifted on June 1.

In a televised speech, Erdogan said, Turkey will lift restrictions on domestic travel and allow restaurants, cafes, parks, beaches, and sports facilities to reopen as of June 1.

Daycare centres and kindergartens, libraries, as well as museums, will also be reopened from June 1, he said.

But the restriction on the movements of those aged over 65 and under 18 would continue, Erdogan added.

Turkey’s first lockdown was imposed at the weekend on April 11-12, followed by the second on April 18-19, and lastly, four days of curfew on April 23-26.
