IMM and municipalities have a feature like this: there is no feast and no audience. Always on the alert, on the alarm and in a working process. We are doing such a task. This sacrifice of this task, this profession, every person involved in this business is valuable. I think the people of Istanbul are aware of this. I know that they have a very, very special love and respect for you. Sometimes there may be deficiencies, mistakes. This is and will exist throughout the business. Our institutions have a completely different responsibility with the pandemic process. Perhaps the most concrete moments of the measures they take and will take in this process are hidden in the moments that you do your duty. Here we need both the maximum understanding of our society and the maximum attention and diligence of all our employees. ”
