At the same time, we identified experts within our own structure. We are in the process with the support of the university. I am not giving clear information at the moment. Because the analysis part of the work continues. We think that we will inform the public very soon. I hope it can be overcome in the fastest way. But this is a fact: This is an administrative gap, an audit gap and unfortunately a technical problem due to the lack of meticulousness of the producer companies. When it becomes clear, we share it with the public more clearly. "
What do you mean by law enforcement?
“We have to in terms of legal process analysis. There is no sanction right now. I am saying in terms of detection. You go somewhere, determine it with a notary public or make a determination with the magistrate; I said it in that sense. "

What are your views on the new corona measures?
“Regarding the corona measures, I have always said this in all the environments I have been in, in all the environments where our civilian chief and minister is present: The voice of reason and science always shows us the right way. Unfortunately, we are late for many moves. A similar situation is currently happening. We all know how much the disease has increased. At my house, everyone is covid at the moment. "
