The vast majority of us are hoping that this will be a temporary period. Curfews, shop closures, supply chain problems, and a great slowdown in social life have created a major panic worldwide. We see how important cleaning is in this difficult period that we are experiencing against the COVID-19 virus. Our request to our people is to fulfill their responsibilities for cleaning. Let’s not forget that cleaning starts with not polluting.”
He added “The primary duty of our citizens in this period is not to go out unless it is absolutely necessary. The more we keep ourselves away from the outside world, the more we get results in this regard. In particular, we should be careful, and warn our older people over 65 and those with chronic illness. We continue our work throughout our city, taking into account the health of everyone. We repeat our call to stay at home, and to be careful to take precautions when having to leave home.”
