Corona infection is increasing in the country. On the other hand, all the restrictions have been lifted. When asked whether new restrictions will be given or not, the minister said, "I am from Geneva. I saw there not a single person wearing a mask. It is not that there are not one or two patients. We are getting two patients here as well. There has been some growth recently. But there are no patients in the hospital. Because everyone has been vaccinated, Corona is not taking a serious form."
