Turkey observed the second weekend as part of a partial curfew imposed across the country in an effort to to curb the increase in the number of coronavirus cases. In the largest city of Istanbul with a population of 16.5 million, markets and groceries were filled with customers who were doing some final shopping before the lockdown started at 8 p.m. on Saturday, reports xinhua news agency. The curfew will end at 10 a.m. on Sunday before starting again at 8 p.m. and running until 5 a.m. on Monday. Videos aired by some media outlets showed crowd gatherings in several locations of the city, especially along the seaside, and ignoring the coronavirus-related rules. (IANS)
