Turkey’s Interior Ministry has announced to extend a travel ban in 15 major cities for another 15 days due to the raging COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement, the ministry said the travel ban will continue from May 20 to June 3 and those who do not obey the restrictions will be subject to administrative fines.

It said that air, land, and sea travel to and from these cities will be restricted.

The cities include Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Balikesir, Bursa, Eskisehir, Gaziantep, Kayseri, Kocaeli, Konya, Manisa, Sakarya, Samsun, Van and Zonguldak.

Earlier in April, Turkey imposed the country’s first travel ban across 31 provinces to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus and later lifted it in some provinces.

As of Tuesday, Turkey has reported a total of 151,615 COVID-19 cases and 4,199 deaths.
