Turkey registered 17,328 new coronavirus cases on Saturday.

The Health Ministry said 105 virus-related fatalities and 18,269 recoveries were recorded in the past 24 hours and as many as 295,004 virus tests were conducted.

To counter the spread of the virus, Turkey has administered more than 146.43 million coronavirus vaccine doses since it launched an immunization drive in January 2021.

More than 57.75 million people have received a first vaccine jab, while 52.92 million have been immunized twice.

As the virus seems to be receding, Turkey scrapped its outdoor mask mandate in early March, a longtime measure to stem the spread of coronavirus.
