The next step may be components such as the closure of shopping malls, hairdressers and barber salons, the fact that none of the children going to school are no longer going to school, and the restriction on working in the private sector and public sector is increased. Existing restrictions. For the benefit of all of us, we all have to make an effort. Let’s say we followed the rules, the number of our cases saw less than 10 thousand after 15 days or 1 month. Then we should be cautious, we should strive to comply with the rules, we need to get our vaccine again so that we do not come back to these days. get used to living with the corona virus we need to. “
