Turkiye registered 1,443 new coronavirus infections in the past 24 hours, according to data released on Wednesday.

The Health Ministry said three fatalities and 1,274 recoveries were recorded, while 135,563 tests were conducted.

To stem the spread of the virus, Turkiye has administered more than 147.66 million vaccine doses since it launched an immunization drive in January 2021.

More than 57.83 million people have received their first jabs, while over 53.05 million are fully vaccinated.

Turkiye lifted its longtime indoor mask mandate last month, except for public transportation and in hospitals.

More than 525 million cases and over 6.28 million deaths have been reported in at least 192 countries and regions, according to the US’ Johns Hopkins University.
