(CNN) – Turkey has recorded its highest number of new Covid-19 positives since April 30 with 2,253 new cases in the last 24 hours, according to the latest figures by the Turkish health ministry.

Turkey’s new cases have been on a downward trajectory since mid-April and have reached as low 1,614 per day.

The country is entering what the Health Minister Fahrettin Koca has called the second phase in its fight against the pandemic. In a news conference on Wednesday, he called this period a “controlled social life,” which will impose fewer restrictions.

“Even though we have used the word normalization, it is not about going back to normal. It is about forging a new normal,” Turkish Health Minister said.

Turkey is due to start lifting some restrictions on May 11, including reopening hairdressers and barber shops.
