Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced a normalization plan to gradually ease restrictions imposed during the Corona virus pandemic as the death rate falls in the country. However, he has also warned of tougher measures if the number of infections rebound.
   
In a televised address following a Cabinet meeting yesterday, President Erdogan said that shopping malls would be allowed to open starting on 11th of May, as would hairdressers and beauty parlours. The shops will be allowed to work on a system of appointment and accept customers only at half-capacity.
 
He added that the government is also lifting entry and exit restrictions for seven cities where the Corona virus outbreak has been brought under control. The measure, however, will remain in place for 24 other cities, including Istanbul and Ankara. He also announced relaxation on home quarantine.
 
Meanwhile, the Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca reported 1,614 more confirmed cases, bringing the total number of infections to 127,659. The country's death toll stands at 3,461. Turkey ranks eighth in confirmed cases, according to Johns Hopkins University.
