According to a statement from Turkey’s health minister, Fahrettin Koca, the border with Iran from Sunday was closed due to rising coronavirus cases in the eastern neighbor. Flights from Iran ceased from 8 p.m. Turkey local time after road and rail crossings between the two countries were shut.

According to media reports, Iran’s health ministry has stated that the death toll from the new coronavirus rose to eight, with 43 confirmed cases in the country.

Iran ranked Turkey’s fifth largest polymer supplier with nearly 219,000 tons of imports during 2019, data from ChemOrbis Import Statistics suggested. Iran was the second top HDPE supplier of Turkey with more than 90,000 tons and the third largest LLDPE exporter of the country with more than 49,000 tons last year.
