ANKARA (AA) - Turkey imposed another weekend curfew on late Friday as part of measures to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.

The weekend-long curfew in the country began on Friday at 9 p.m. and will end on Monday 5 a.m. local time.

Certain sectors such as production, supply, health and agriculture are exempt from the curfews and supermarkets, grocery stores, butchers, and dried fruit shops will operate between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. over the weekend.

Turkey's overall case tally stands at 2.41 million, with recoveries topping 2.29 million and death toll reaching 24,789.

The pandemic has claimed more than 2 million lives in 192 countries and regions since it originated in China in December 2019.

Over 97.7 million cases have been reported worldwide, with recoveries nearing 54 million, according to figures compiled by the US Johns Hopkins University.

The US, India, and Brazil remain the worst-hit countries in terms of cases.
