Iran's provinces are witnessing decline in COVID-19 infections and mortality rate, but there should be more efforts to prevent a new peak, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said.
Axar.az reports that this was reported by foreign media.
"We're on the right track and we can surpass the fourth peak, but it is essential we all comply with the health protocols," he said.
He urged people to avoid big gatherings and limit their travels.
"If the high risk groups are vaccinated by the end of government ruling term (July 2021), the mortality rate would have a significant decline," Rouhani said. "Our efforts are oriented towards stopping the virus cycle."
Iran continues to monitor the coronavirus situation in the country. Reрortedly, the disease was brought to Iran by a businessman from Iran's Qom city, who went on a business trip to China, despite official warnings. The man died later from the disease.
