The President also referred to the report on the process of providing e-services and its role in reducing disease and maintaining public health and said, "The development of e-government in the days of coronavirus outbreak was a great help for the country and given the preparation of most necessary infrastructure and telecommunications, the provision of major government services should be done as much as possible from the mobile government software platform and via mobile phones".

The President emphasised, "People's health is the main priority of the government and we will do everything in our power to maintain the health of the people in providing a reliable vaccine".
