Around 14 million people in Türkiye have been affected by the quakes.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Türkiye will erase traces of the destruction caused by the powerful earthquakes on February 6, and be more prepared for possible disasters in the future.
The powerful February 6 quakes in the country's southern region injured 107,204 people, says the head of the Turkish disaster management authority.
Authorities examined more than 1.7 million buildings in the quake-hit provinces and determined 232,632 buildings need to be immediately razed, says Environment Minister Murat Kurum.
Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu says 45,968 people, including 4,267 Syrian refugees in the country, have lost their lives in the February 6 quakes that devastated parts of Türkiye and neighbouring Syria.
Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus President Ersin Tatar wishes a speedy recovery for all of the earthquake survivors during his visit to Türkiye's earthquake zone.
Real Madrid top player says all proceeds from the sale of his No. 10 jersey, worn in the 2022 World Cup opener against Morocco, will go to the victims of the February 6 disaster.
Türkiye's catastrophe is an opportunity to improve the international humanitarian system, global financial institutions, as well as the private sector.
Ziya Soner Tugtekin, 60, who was pulled alive 56 hours after quakes says he rejected rescuers' request that he throw away his partially-smoked cigarette "because I came to life with a cigarette."
New buildings "will not be higher than three to four floors" and will be planned according to local culture and customs, says Turkish Urbanisation Minister Murat Kurum.
Authorities in hard-hit provinces detain more suspects over shoddy work that appears to have contributed to damage or collapse of thousands of buildings, widening February 6 disaster's almost unfathomable scale.
Relatives of Neslihan Kilic, 42, say they had lost hopes of seeing her alive again and urged rescuers to abandon mission due to fears remaining corpses would get damaged until her voice was heard from the ruins of Kahramanmaras province building.
