Thanks to strict compliance with social isolation rules and tight controls against the spread of the novel coronavirus, no cases of the disease have been encountered in Turkey’s coastal Mediterranean town of Kas.

Since the first day of measures, people coming for leisure from outside the district, located in the southwestern Antalya province, were not allowed to visit or stay, Bulent Karacan, governor of the town, told Anadolu Agency.

Karacan explained that hotels have not accepted guests since the beginning of the outbreak, postponing bookings until after the disease has subsided.
