The health minister said Turkey was seeing a second peak of outbreaks due to “negligence” at weddings and other social gatherings.

The capital, Ankara, has seen the fastest increase in the number of cases so far, with 29,66565 health workers infected with the virus, 52 of whom are dying, Fahretin Coca said.
“The prevalence continues to grow. The virus is spreading to more and more people every day. The number of our tests is increasing every day, the number of our new patients is not decreasing,” Mr Coca said.
According to the ministry, the number of new cases has risen by 1,966 in the last 24 hours to 2,273,301, while the number of deaths due to the virus has risen by 45 to 6,462.

Stromant’s health minister, Robin Swann, has announced a plan for the second Nightingale Hospital department in Northern Ireland as part of a plan to address an expected “winter” soon.
Located at Whitebaby Hospital in Co Antrim, the facility will include 100 intermediate care beds.
Swann Sturmont told the media in a briefing on Wednesday that he was growing up in the view that “there is a possibility of another full-scale attack on the growing Covid-19.”
“More people will die with grief and others will face long-term damage to their health,” he said.
“It’s going to be a winter, with healthcare going through the hardest winter in its history.
“My department is finalizing a new Covid-19 enhanced planning strategy framework that sets out our preparations for the next peak of infection and winter stress.
The new facility will “help streamline the flow of ICUs and intensive care patients,” Swann said.
A nightingale facility has been launched at Belfast City Hospital to provide more intensive care beds at the peak of the coronavirus epidemic. It was injured in May, but Swann said it could be brought back online if needed.

Bolton West and Atherton MP Chris Green told BBC Radio 4 Prime Minister The health communications department was “not as effective as our choice” and made the situation more “difficult” locally.
He added: “I think the section is very clear in my view of the importance of communication.
“Everyone knows what we need to know to ensure better communication as well as timely communication, because we want local councilors, council leaders and MPs, the mayor of Greater Manchester, we want all players to be able locally. Communicate effectively with local residents. “Because we have to travel around the country and change things at different times, we need to effectively disseminate this information.”
The government announced on Friday that family-imposed bans on Trafford and Bolton would be removed from Wednesday night, although local councils and politicians in both regions warned that the infection had not diminished significantly.
Hancock’s announcement earlier today is the latest in an official U-turn to the coronavirus.

There are no signs of a significant virus spreading since the school reopened – European health chief
The head of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control says the coronavirus does not appear to be spreading significantly in early schools across the continent.
Many students returned to classrooms around Europe this week, but some opened before the end of June. Several countries, such as Germany, opened their doors for the new school year in August.
ECDC director Andrea Amman told EU politicians that anti-virus measures such as social-distance, hand washing, avoiding public gatherings and limiting suspicious cases among students and staff should be sufficient to limit the spread of the disease.
“Closing schools should be your last resort,” said Ms. Amman.
Belgium has one of the highest per capita deaths in the world from coronavirus. About 10,000 people have died in 11.5 million countries. According to the ECDC, there are 85,393 cases in Belgium.
