Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said the 15 passengers had been isolated, as had those with whom they had contact. No other case of Covid-19 mutation has been detected during regular nationwide tests.

“The situation is under control,” Koca said in a statement.

“Entry into Turkey from the United Kingdom has been temporarily suspended.”
