There is serious circulation at the border gate. It has an average of 1500 vehicle output per day. There are also as many entries. There is an average of 3 thousand vehicle entry and exit traffic. We established our field hospital there early on. We deployed our healthcare teams. One of our team is still working.

Until today, there has been around 1.5 million vehicles entering and exiting there, as well as 500 thousand citizen circulation. We’ve scanned them all” said.

We have seen the benefit of this application too. Our companies cooperated with us. After changing the driver, the driver picked up the trucks and handed them over. The delivered vehicles have undoubtedly been disinfected inside and outside and are still being passed. After waiting for a certain period of time, they are allowed to continue on the road.“he spoke.

They are on the field every day. We also created audit units together. We tried to reach our central districts, villages and hamlets where there were public officials and police officers, and we expected the sensitivity of our citizens to contribute in this process. All of our friends, including myself, have made an effort to go out to the field together. We made intensive visits especially to our tradesmen.” said.

We should definitely not be complacent because the virus loves to complacent. It spreads immediately and, God forbid, the number of cases can increase. In this sense, especially when such statements are made, we immediately get together with our citizens and make suggestions. Let’s not compromise on measures. This process continues. If we have succeeded in becoming a blue city together, we can only bring it to continue together. Otherwise, God forbid, it has no meaning when it turns upside down. We say that we need to be much more careful in order to find the place of this effort..”
