Ankara/Sputnik/UNI:  Turkey is suspending air travel with other countries amid the COVID-19 epidemic, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday.

Earlier in the day, the country's health minister said there were 5,698 COVID-19 cases in Turkey.

"International air travel stops fully. People have to get a special permission for travel between cities from governors, this specially concerns the 30 largest cities in the country. Only the essential personnel will work at offices," Erdogan said.
