Turkey's progress against covid-19
While Turkey is planning for normalization since beginning of June, the confirmed cases were below 1,000. The weekend curfew and travel restrictions ended, while restaurants, malls, and gyms were all allowed to reopen in Turkey for the normalization step. First two weeks the confirmed cases were below 1,000, but this weekend the confirmed cases rose to 1,562. Which makes Turkey concern.
"Our number of healed patients has fallen below the number of new cases. The need for intensive care and respiratory equipment is increasing: We are moving away from the target," Koca said.
"Our weakest link, Unwary optimism," he said, urging the public to return to a "controlled social life" on Monday.

As he kept warning repeatedly the citizens to wear a mask and practice social distancing in what he called "controlled social life" period.
