However those drivers and passengers were informed with preventive conversations, returned people retry to pass the checkpoints, cause the crowd in the checkpoints using unfounded excuses, and block the movement of other vehicles allowed to run.
Also despite that the country citizens were advised to stay home regardless of the registration place in order to minimize the spreading of the infection by Operational Headquarters under the Cabinet of Ministers, coming of the persons that is not registered in Baku city, Sumgayit city and Absheron district, in the direction of the capital traveling long distances with the intention of entering these areas, as well as the desire of the citizens of abovementioned district and cities to go to the districts result in the suffering of themselves and their passengers, unnecessary spending and being forced to go back.
