ANKARA (AA) - Turkish parliament extended an entry ban on foreign nationals into the country to help stem the spread of the novel coronavirus, the speaker's office announced on Tuesday.

"The ban on visitors has been extended to cover the period between April 1 and April 30," the office said in a statement.
