Iran tightens quarantine amid growing number of patients

In Iran, against the background of an increase in the number of cases of infection with a new type of coronavirus infection (COVID-19), enterprises that are not of strategic importance for the country are closed for six days. This was announced by Ali Riza Reisi, press secretary of the Iranian National Council for Combating Coronavirus.

“Against the backdrop of a sharp increase in COVID-19, in the period from August 16 to 21, Iran has been declared non-working days,” Reisi said.

According to him, the ban on long-distance travel is in effect from noon Sunday, August 15, and will last until Saturday, August 21.

Reisi also noted that shopping centers, government agencies and banks will be closed during the week. The only exceptions are enterprises and structures that are vital for the country.
