“For two months, we are struggling to gain a gas container, but we have gotten nothing,” said another citizen.

“For more than a month, they did not provide gas. Now, they say do not gather due to the coronavirus. After one month, they have eventually brought cooking gas, but this is the people’s situation,” said a woman.
