An additional 373 people were placed under 14-day quarantine in this province on May 1 after returning from abroad amid the novel coronavirus.
The Şanlıurfa provincial governorate said 100 were brought from Iraq by bus and 273 from Algeria by plane. A total of 299 were Turks.
They were transferred to rooms after a health screening to begin the two-week observation, after which they will be able to leave if no symptoms have occurred.
After originating in China last December, COVID-19 has spread to at least 187 countries and regions. Europe and the U.S. are currently the worst-hit regions.
