CHP’s 10 metropolitan mayors continue to insist that the numbers announced by the Health Ministry don’t refl ect the truth


Turkey has signed a contract to purchase 50 million doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, although rising numbers of cases have forced the government to again begin applying partial lockdowns.

There will be a partial lockdown between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on weekdays, while there will be a full lockdown on weekends, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Nov. 30.

People over 65 and under 20 can no longer ride public transport, officials said, adding that they would also cap the number of people on Istanbul’s busy Istiklal Avenue.

Meanwhile, the CHP’s 10 metropolitan mayors continue to insist that the numbers announced by the Health Ministry don’t reflect the truth and that the number of deaths in Turkey is two or three times the official figure. The Health Ministry said 190 people died nationwide on Dec. 1, yet Istanbul’s cemetery directorate stated that 188 died due to infectious diseases on the same day in that city alone.

Beds in intensive care units are also at a premium, according to reports.
