Turkey’s transportation and infrastructure minister said they completed talks on flight resumptions with 92 countries, Hurriyet Daily reported.

Turkey will also continue to allow flights to 48 other countries, Adil Karaismailoğlu said in a press release.

Turkey suspended international travel to curb the spread of coronavirus, but has been gradually resuming flights since June 11.

Earlier in August, doctors in Turkey’s coronavirus hotspots said hospitals were filling up with more cases than are reflected in the official nationwide count, which resurged above 1,000 that week.

Intensive care units (ICUs) and emergency rooms in hospitals set aside for COVID-19 patients were at capacity in the capital Ankara and the southeastern city of Gaziantep, medics associations from those regions told Reuters.
