There is no other way to stop and slow down the spread of the epidemic. In the meantime, we want people not to get on public transport without a mask. For this purpose, we took action on the purchase of masks days ago and showed our will. I hope the people of Izmir will abide by this rule. We will also support the people of Izmir who cannot provide masks," he said.
