Taking the precautions to a higher level in Izmir due to the coronavirus epidemic, the Metropolitan Municipality placed thermal cameras at 20 locations with high human density in the city. In addition to the Transporters' Site, where hundreds of people enter and leave in Bornova every day and are criticized for this intensity in the first days of the crisis, the thermal cameras installed in the Vegetable and Fruit Market, Izmir Intercity Bus Station and the Fire Department Department of the Metropolitan Municipality, the fire of both employees and visitors is measured. Citizens whose fever is above normal are directed to health institutions.

The drivers who are taken inside by measuring the fire one by one through the thermal camera installed at the entrance of the Transporters Site are satisfied with the application. Transporters Site President Fikret Akdemir thanked Metropolitan Municipality for the application and said, “They helped us by bringing such a thermal camera.

Previously, 3 people came to the Transporters' Site per day, but now the number of people coming now varies between 700 and thousand. We keep this place under control as much as we can. ”
