UN Resident Coordinator in Azerbaijan Gulam Ishaqzai has addressed a virtual appeal, entitled "Do it for Azerbaijan" regarding COVID-19 pandemics,
"Dear friends, Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic is still with us.
Globally, we have over 9 million cases and reaching half a million deaths.
In Azerbaijan too, the number of cases are rising every day. So are the number of deaths sadly. Recently, I also lost a member of my family because of this virus.
Trust me, the threat is real and it is here! We shouldn’t wait for COVID-19 to knock on our door.
I appeal to you and request you to follow these simple steps, to defeat this calamity and to quickly return to normal life:
• Keep a physical distance;
• Wash your hands regularly;
• Wear a mask where necessary and wear it properly;
• Do not leave the house unless necessary.
• Comply with Government’s lockdown measures.
Do this for yourself! For your family! And For Azerbaijan!
Thank you!", noted in the appeal.
