In the coordination of Gaziantep Governorship, Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Fatma Şahin and Deputy Minister of Health Dr. After the HES (Hayat Eve Sığar) Code Application Protocol signed between Şuayip Birinci, a press launch was organized. Accordingly, citizens who register by entering the HES application will be able to enter data from hes.gaziulas.com.tr until October 17, 2020 to integrate their information into GaziantepKart. Passengers who do not register within 15 days will have their travel cards blocked. Thus, contact or positive patients can be followed while using public transportation in the city.
At the launch held at Democracy Square on July 15, the operation of the system was exemplified via GaziantepKart in the urban public transportation vehicle, which is the application area of the system that will raise awareness against the new type of Coronavirus.
Save HES Code
Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Fatma Şahin emphasized that they are the first team to realize the project that is tried to be implemented in 81 provinces and said, “In order to convert the circulars from the Presidency, the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Health into practice, your infrastructure will be suitable for this and you need a system to follow it. We worked on "Who will do what" and "How will the coordination be achieved here" in the circulars led by our governor. The most important in this system in metropolitan cities is public transportation. With the incoming circulars, you will no longer be able to get on public transport if you are a positive case or suspect while getting on public transportation. In Ankara, we explained the Gaziantep Card working systematic with the Deputy Minister of Health and how the HES Code system and the TR Identity Number work. During the TEKNOFEST period, we signed a protocol and prepared the software hardware of this system. first time in Turkey, Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, including Gaziantep was lead by example here. The system does not accept a contact and positive case with the Gaziantep Card system. This situation is important to us because we need to protect the person and society. We need to protect the health of everyone who gets on the bus. For this, you had to have established the smart city, the infrastructure of smart transportation. If we had not created the infrastructure of smart transportation in 2017, we would not be able to fulfill this desired demand today. We have a very serious software and hardware, trained manpower. This system created a healthy and safe city infrastructure. Our request from the citizens is to register their "HES Code" very quickly. Because he must protect himself, his family and the elderly. "We will have integrated this system within 15 days."
Contacts Cannot Use Public Transport
Gaziantep Governor Davut Gül reminded that they can divide the patients in quarantine into 3, and said: “Those who have been treated in the hospital, those who have positive cases but do not show symptoms, and those who have been in contact and have been observed for 14 days. Especially, contacted citizens are not always highly affected by the epidemic, so they can go out thinking that they feel good. With this system, citizens who are in remote contact with the mass epidemic will be prevented from using public transportation. When this first came to the agenda, we had a meeting with Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu. He became a follower of the situation and then a protocol was signed between the Ministry of Health and the Metropolitan Municipality.
When we compare it according to the circular, we have fulfilled the directives of the central administration in a short time like 3 days. However, although this may seem like 3 days, we see that there are smart cities investments made in the city in 2017. Gaziantep is ready. We determined that a total of 300 people use disposable cards in transportation daily. This means the following; There are 10 in 1 thousand passengers using an individual card. The situation of citizens using individual cards will also be formulated within 15 days, and passenger pickup will not be made without questioning the HES application in transportation. It is a great advantage for our city. But I have an inquiry from you Gazi city dwellers. Take care to use your GaziantepCards in transportation, so every passenger can meet their transportation needs through these cards as much as possible.
