Turkey announced a “no-entry” ban on the British on New Year’s Eve, as 15 cases of the new, more contagious coronavirus mutation were detected in travelers from the United Kingdom.
Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said the 15 passengers had been isolated, as well as those with whom they had contact.
No other case of Covid-19 mutation has been detected during regular nationwide tests.
