The ministry said checks were carried out in 145 barber and hair salons where they checked 236 employees, 51 beauty salons where officials checked 78 employees, 175 supermarkets and grocery stores where 963 employees were checked and 121 kiosks where 255 employees were checked and 568 food companies where 1,874 employees were checked.
