Turkey to impose four-day lockdown from Dec 31

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Monday said Turkey will impose a four-day lockdown beginning on Dec. 31 to maintain gains against the pandemic.

Speaking after a cabinet meeting, Erdoğan said the stay-home order would begin at 9 p.m. on Dec. 31 and run through Jan. 4.

The government this month re-introduced weekend lockdowns as well as nighttime curfews amid a spike in infections and deaths. It has avoided a full lockdown since the beginning of the pandemic to keep the country's beleagured economy running.

Erdogan also announced some rental support for businesses and promised to continue discounts for value added taxes.

Monday’s health ministry statistics showed a record of 229 confirmed new daily deaths, bringing the total death toll to 16,646. The 7-day average of confirmed infections hovers above 30,000, making Turkey one of the worst-hit nations in the world.
