Turkey: Covid-19 Coronavirus death toll is 29,552


Turkey: Covid-19 Coronavirus death toll is 29,552

Turkey’s COVID-19 explosion brings harsh restrictions.

Al Jazeera English shows that a nationwide weekend curfew was in effect in Turkey to try to stop a sharp rise in new coronavirus infections. At least 30,000 daily cases were reported on that week. More restrictions were introduced in an effort to contain the outbreak. Al Jazeera’s Sinem Koseoglu reports from Istanbul, Turkey.

The COVID-19 pandemic in Turkey is part of the ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

The first case in Turkey was recorded on March 11, 2020, when a local returned home from a trip to Europe. The first death due to COVID-19 in the country occurred on 15 March, 2020. Turkey has stood out from the rest of Europe by not ordering a legal lockdown. The government kept many businesses open, and allowed companies to set their own guidelines regarding workers.

As of 14 March 2021, Turkey has 2,879,390 confirmed cases, 2,701,076 recoveries, 29,489 deaths, and a death rate of 343 per million people, the 66th highest rate globally.

The resulting wave of infections never came close to overwhelming the Turkish health system, which has the highest number of intensive care units in the world at 46.5 beds per 100,000 people (compared to 9.6 in Greece, 11.6 in France, and 12.6 in Italy).

As of March 1, 2021, Turkey's observed case-fatality rate stands at 1.06%. This low (compared to other countries) case-fatality rate has generated various explanations including the relative rarity of nursing homes, favorable demographics, long legacy of contact tracing, high number of intensive care units, universal health care, and a lockdown regime that led to a higher proportion of positive cases among working-age adults.
