The World Health Organization told that they are quite concerned as the spread is huge and the cases are rising.

And now, sadly, we are seeing rises in deaths for the last three weeks," Dr. Margaret Harris, a spokeswoman of WHO told in a media briefing. The number of new coronavirus cases rose for the sixth consecutive week and 4 million new cases are reported across the globe. The new deaths increased by 11 percent when compared to the previous week.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan imposed new restrictions in March. Weekend lockdowns are now imposed.
