“We have decided to continue implementing current [normalization] measures across our cities and to closely monitor the developments,” Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said after a Cabinet meeting at the presidential complex.
He warned that new restrictions are “inevitable” if citizens do not comply with the COVID-19 precautionary measures.
In January, Turkey began a mass COVID-19 vaccination campaign, and a gradual normalization from coronavirus restrictions began on March 1.
Erdoğan said 11.5 million vaccine doses have been administered nationwide, making it one of the top five countries where vaccination is going as planned.
These include 7.94 million first doses and 3.57 million second doses.
He said the country would continue acquiring vaccines from abroad until its locally developed COVID-19 vaccine is ready for use.
