Lockdowns that had been imposed on Sundays and curfews from 1900 GMT on weekdays would be lifted from July 1, Erdogan said after a government cabinet meeting.
The move came after the number of new daily coronavirus infections in the country has subsided from more than 60,000 before the closures to roughly 5,000 this month
