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.
