Turkish authorities are considering measures, including possible new curbs, to respond to a spike in the number of COVID-19 cases as well as the presence of virus variants in the country.
As part of the possible precautionary actions, some region-specific restrictions may be introduced, said officials, without elaborating on what they might be.
It has been almost a year since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. Everyone's resilience - both that of citizens and the state - is being tested, as developments with the virus are not encouraging.
That is why it is necessary for those who communicate with the public - either as competent experts or as unqualified opposition - to avoid exaggerations.
The U.K variant of the coronavirus has been detected in 17 provinces in Turkey, infecting at least 128 people across the country, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca has said.
In a tweet, Koca noted that COVID-19 variants have been a major force behind surging case numbers in Europe, reiterating his warning that the public must continue to adhere to the anti-virus measures.
