ANKARA (AA) - Turkey registered 2,213 new COVID-19 patients over the past 24 hours, according to the Health Ministry data released on Saturday.

The country’s overall tally now stands at 375,367, the ministry said.

Some 1,506 more patients recovered over the past day, raising the count to 323,971, while the death toll rose by 75 to reach 10,252.

A total of 124,109 more COVID-19 tests were carried out across the country, bringing the total to over 14 million.
