President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said today that all businesses will have to close unless otherwise stated by the interior minister.

Supermarkets can stay open, except on Sundays. Permission will be needed for intercity travel. All schools will switch to online learning.

He added that the aim is to lower daily infections to 5,000. Confirmed infections Sunday stood at 38,553.
