Turkey orders confinement of over 65s and chronically ill

The Turkish Interior Ministry has announced this Saturday that people over 65 and those with chronic pathologies will not be able to go out on the street after midnight.

In addition, the Ministry has announced that the provincial governments will take care of the elderly who live alone and that to manage this aid they must contact the Police or the health services, reports the Turkish newspaper, ‘Daily Sabah’.

“It is of the utmost importance that all our citizens comply with the measures adopted to stop the epidemic as soon as possible,” explains the Ministry.

Until now, staying in the houses was a recommendation, but many citizens have ignored it, so the authorities are considering tightening the restrictions.

The last official balance of those affected in Turkey dates to Friday, when 670 infected were reported after the positive of 311 people. In addition there are nine deaths from the new disease.
