Then, in other citizens, they apply to the Training and Research Hospital together. They are taken under precautionary observation in our Training and Research Hospital. There is no problem right now. Especially in social media, ‘such a job happened to the workers in Botaş Salt Lake Storage Area’, the news about such a case is unrealistic. It has nothing to do with the storage area with Tuz Gölü. Only 10 Chinese citizens, 2 Turks came with them, our citizens are just under observation. ”

We will observe them for 24 hours. We took the blood, sent the blood to the ministry, the results will be released within 24 hours. We will send them after the results come out. Because we keep under observation, we expect the results to come. There is no problem right now, “he said.
