Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,

Currently, the COVID-19 spread is slightly on the rise, but we don’t need to overreact in responding to this.

Therefore, I would like to once again remind the public of the importance of vaccination, for the first and second doses, as well as the first and second boosters. I hope we don’t belittle our safety by not completing the vaccinations recommended by the Government.

I am appealing to the people who might feel ill and to those with comorbidities to wear a face mask. Wearing a face mask should also be a must when meeting elderly people.

Lastly, don’t forget to wash your hands after doing activities.

I thank you.
