“It is clear that everything will not be possible at the same time so succeed, but we will try so that a person can register serenely,” said the minister.
In addition, according to him, there is a problem of the so-called “temporary unemployment”.
“People who have temporarily lost their jobs due to the closure of destinations and businesses due to the coronavirus should also be provided,” said the official.
