SAEDNEWS Oct. 4: On Saturday, Oct. 3, authorities in Tehran reintroduced lockdown measures in the capital following a rise in coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases. Gyms, swimming pools, and mosque as well as many other public places are closed for one week. While the Iranian government does not release death tolls by province, Tehran is believed to have seen around 50 deaths a day out of a nationwide average of 200 a day.
President Hassan Rouhani announced on Oct. 2 that large gatherings, including weddings and funerals, have been banned throughout Iran until further notice due to the recent spike in cases in the country. The wearing of face masks in public places has also been made mandatory.
Many have already been infected in Tehran and the hospitals are not prepared to contain the situation. It seems that people should pich in and observe the protocols otherwise there would be nationwide castrophe as frequently warned by the health officials.
