In the past 24 hours, 28 more people died, taking the death toll to 4,489, Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca tweeted.
Turkey conducted 36,155 tests for coronavirus in the last 24 hours, bringing the overall number of tests carried out to 1,964,364, the minister said.
Some 1,594 patients recovered in the last 24 hours, he noted.
A total of 125,963 patients have recovered in Turkey since the outbreak, while 662 patients are being treated at the intensive care units and 324 others being intubated.
“The number of tests has increased, while the new cases are decreased. The fall in number of patients in intensive care units and those intubated continues,” the minister stated.
Turkey and China have supported each other in the fight against COVID-19.
On April 10, Chinese doctors and medical experts held a video conference with Turkish counterparts to share China’s experiences in treating coronavirus patients, protecting medical workers, and controlling the spread of the virus.
