Larger cities do not amplify the COVID-19 pandemic in Turkey. Reports from Turkish cities provide evidence that the Gibrat's Law holds and the infection grows among population in proportion to the city sizes. Growth of the pandemic is not faster in larger cities. COVID-19 cases are lognormally distributed throughout the country. While the 0-19 age group of the society is associated with a negative impact on the reported cases, 40-59 group has the most additive effect. Distribution of the reported deaths from COVID-19 does not grow in proportion to the city size, and may well be approximated by both exponential and normal distributions.
