The old bridge at the historical heart of Turkey's biggest city Istanbul on Tuesday is filled with anglers, raising concerns of the Turkish government and local authorities over the spread of COVID-19. After the government eased the COVID-19 restrictions last week, more than 500 fishermen each day flocked to the Galata Bridge, a hotspot fishing location in the European part of the city, spanning the Golden Horn.
