Turkey suspends Iran and Afghanistan flights

Posted 24 July 2020 · Add Comment

The Turkish Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure has said it has suspended flights to and from Iran and Afghanistan due to coronavirus-related concerns.

 

Iran and Afghanistan are both in the midst of coronavirus outbreaks.

 

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said last week that 25 million people may have been infected with the coronavirus in Iran, although health officials later sought to play down the estimate.

 

In Afghanistan cases are being underreported with the Afghan Red Crescent Society stating: “Potential health, social and economic catastrophes caused by COVID-19.”
