A total of 1,493 people recovered from the novel coronavirus in Turkey over the last day, bringing the total number to date to 191,883, said the country's health minister on Friday.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.
"The fall in the number of newly diagnosed patients -- that started on June 25 -- continues. We are very close to [have the number] drop below 1,000," Fahrettin Koca said.
"However, don't forget that these drops are slow, while rises are sudden. The rises and falls depend on high or low compliance with the rules of social distancing and [wearing] masks," Koca added.
Turkey saw 1,003 new cases of COVID-19 over the past day, bringing the total number of infections nationwide to 210,965, the data showed.
The country's death toll from the virus rose to 5,323, with 23 new fatalities reported in the last 24 hours.
