Turkey suspends flights from UK, Netherlands, Denmark, & South Africa

Turkey suspends flights from UK, Netherlands, Denmark, & South Africa; but not Sweden?

At the time of writing, the Turkish Airlines COVID-19 information page is not updated to reflect the suspensions. However, the airline’s official Twitter feed made the announcement. Simple Flying has contacted Turkish Airlines for further information. The decision is attributed to the deteriorating COVID-19 situation in Europe. Passengers already on planes from the four affected countries will undergo testing and quarantine upon arrival in Istanbul.

Well Turkey's not doing that great either. One of the sources of new covid cases here is all the returning Israelis who visit Turkey. I heard from a reputable news source (albeit more than a couple weeks ago) that Turkey's only counting symptomatic illness at cases.
