President Rouhani: Iran transiting from coronavirus’ peak

IRNA – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated here on Thursday that the country is passing through the coronavirus peak.

All Iranian provinces, except two, are leaving behind the virus peak, President Rouhani said addressing a ceremony held via videoconference on inauguration of the biggest medium-density fibreboard (MDF) production unit in the northern Iranian province of Mazandaran.

To fight against the coronavirus pandemic, correct methods have been applied across the country, the president said.

He further appreciated medical personnel for their sacrifice for the country during the anti-coronavirus campaign.

The deadly coronavirus radiating from Wuhan, China, in December 2019 has affected near 17,190,000 people across the world and killed over 670,000 people; while in Iran the number of the dead is over 16,300.
