The number of infections in Turkey rose by 168 to 359 on Thursday and four people have died from the illness, Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said in a late-night statement.

Turkey has enhanced measures to control the spread of coronavirus, administering 1,981 tests on Thursday alone and placing 9,800 people in quarantine. It has cancelled all public events and urged its citizens to stay at home.

Turkey has so far focused on people who came from overseas or were in touch with foreigners who recently arrived in the country. Ankara shifted thousands of people straight from airports to 14-day quarantine facilities around the country, screening them with a homemade 75-minute diagnosis kit that detects the virus.
