Turkey has expanded its coronavirus vaccination programme, providing nearly 600,000 doses in the past 24 hours.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced last month to step up the vaccination campaign in June as the country seeks to revive its faltering economy, especially the tourism industry.

The state-run Anadolu news agency reported that since the vaccination began on January 14, more than 33 million doses have been administered, including 13.6 million second doses.

Turkey has a population of about 84 million people.

The daily infection rate decreased from its highest rate, 63,000 in mid-April, to 6,261 on Friday, according to official data.

On Monday, Turkey is expected to start vaccinating people between the ages of 40 and 49.
