The number of coronavirus cases in Turkey exceeded 181,000 with a daily addition of 1,467 on Tuesday, according to a chart posted on Twitter by Health Minister Fahrettin Koca.

The death toll also increased by 17 to 4,842, the chart indicated.

The number of patients in intensive care reached 732, 10 more than yesterday.

Meanwhile, 153,379 people in Turkey have recovered from the virus since mid-March, according to the Health Ministry.

Koca tweeted that the daily number of new cases being over 1,000 was mainly caused by the unexpectedly high spread in some regions, without naming them.

The ministry is frequently criticized by medical experts for not disclosing detailed data on the trajectory of the disease inside the country.
