All mosques in Iran will reopen on Tuesday as the government takes another step towards easing restrictions designed to contain the coronavirus, the official IRIB news agency reported.

The decision to reopen the mosques was made in consultation with the ministry of health, Mohammad Qomi, the director of the Islamic Development Organisation, said.

The move comes even though some parts of the country have seen a rise in infections.

Tasnim news agency reported on Sunday that a county in southwestern Iran had been placed under lockdown to prevent the spread of the virus.

The total number of diagnosed cases in the country has reached more than 110,000.

Iran, one of the countries in the Middle East hit hardest by the novel coronavirus, has begun easing restrictions on normal life in order to keep afloat its economy, already battered by US sanctions. Health officials have repeatedly warned, however, that easing restrictions could lead to a renewed spike in the number of infections.
