A ban on layoffs was also imposed in the 10 earthquake-hit provinces covered by a state of emergency.

Turkey’s parliament imposed a three-month state of emergency on 7 February following a request from President Tayyip Erdogan.

The government offered wage support and a ban on layoffs in 2020 in an effort to ease the economic shock from COVID-19.

Business groups and economists have said the quake could cost Ankara up to $100 billion to rebuild housing and infrastructure, and shave one to two percentage points off economic growth this year.
