Turkey logged 394 coronavirus-related deaths in the last 24 hours, its biggest ever daily toll, data from the Health Ministry showed on Friday, a day after a nationwide lockdown went into effect.
The data also showed 31,891 new coronavirus cases in the same period.
Turkey ranks fourth globally in number of daily cases based on a seven-day average. Ankara has tightened restrictions as infections and deaths surged to record highs after an easing of measures in March.
