TUZLA, April 6 (FENA) - The Cantonal Civil Protection Crisis Staff in Tuzla has formally asked the FBiH Civil Protection Crisis Staff to urgently review the supplemented Order allowing the persons over the age of 65 to go outside so that they could collect their pensions this week, until Friday, from 08.00 to 12.00 hrs. 

Namely, in the area of Tuzla Canton, the crisis staff has recorded a mass violation of the provisions on the use of personal protective equipment and social distance, said Mustafa Šakić, from the Cantonal crisis staff.

Crowds were being created in front of pharmacies, banks and grocery stores.

The cantonal crisis staff believes that such behavior will jeopardize everything good that has been done and achieved so far in preventing the spread of coronavirus infection, which could have lasting consequences on the health of the population, especially senior citizens.
