“We affirm that facing COVID-19 and taking care of the conditions related to the safety and affairs of citizens and residents is at the top of our priorities today, and we put all our potentials for this purpose.”
“We call on our people to feel the pain and needs of everyone and provide all available energies in the service of the staffs working in various fields,” the society further stated.
It went on to say “Once again, we call upon everyone to abide by the instructions and directives issued by the competent authorities with regard to besieging the COVID-19 pandemic and its rapid repercussions.”
