Hello and welcome to the details of Iran’s Rouhani says low-risk economic activities to resume from April 11 amid coronavirus and now with the details
DUBAI, April 5 — Iran’s president said today “low-risk” economic activities would resume from April 11 in the Middle Eastern country worst-affected by the new coronavirus.
Iran has been struggling to curb the spread of the highly infectious respiratory disease known as Covid-19 but authorities are also concerned that measures to limit public life to contain the virus could wreck an already sanctions-battered economy.
“Under the supervision of the health ministry, all those low-risk economic activities will resume from Saturday,” President Hassan Rouhani said in a televised meeting, adding that “those activities will resume in Tehran from April 18”.
“Two thirds of all Iranian government employees will work out of the office from Saturday...The decision does not contradict stay at home advice by the health authorities.”
Rouhani did not spell what he meant by low-risk activity, but said the suspension of “high-risk activities” – schools, universities and various social, cultural, sports and religious events would be extended to April 18.
The health ministry said yesterday that the Islamic Republic’s death toll had reached 3,452 among a total of 55,743 infected people. The daily toll has been rising by at least 100.
Iranian officials have repeatedly complained that many Iranians ignored appeals to stay at home and cancel travel plans for the New Year holidays that began on March 20.
Health authorities have since warned of a new wave of coronavirus infections in the Islamic Republic. Rouhani’s government has refrained from imposing a lockdown on cities but prohibited intercity travel until April 8.
