ANKARA: Turkish Labor, Social Services and Family Ministry on Friday announced visitors will not be allowed to retirement and nursing homes across the country on Mother’s Day Sunday, and also during traditional Eid al-Fitr holiday at the end of Muslim holy month of Ramazan.

As the novel coronavirus continues to affect thousands of people, especially the elderly, across the world, the ministry’s measure is believed to help curb the spread of the virus in the country.

Turkey currently has 133,721 confirmed cases, and the death toll stands at 3,641.
