The Number of Daily Virus Cases in Turkey Surpassed 30K on Wednesday

ANKARA, Turkey — The number of daily coronavirus cases in Turkey surpassed 30,000 on Wednesday, the highest number of infections since April 30.

The Health Ministry reported 30,438 new cases and 228 confirmed deaths. Fahrettin Koca, the health minister, says with the number of daily cases hovering between 28,000 and 30,000 since mid-September. There were approximately 300,000 active cases in the country during a 10-day period.

“We have to be aware that this situation presents a critical burden,” he said. “The fact that most of the current active cases are among the young means that our health system is not strained. Still, such high numbers of infected people is not acceptable.”

He urged people to get vaccinated. Nearly 73% of the adult population has been fully vaccinated, according to the ministry figures.
