Rate of virus infections declining in most Iranian provinces: Official


A Bajis member stands in front of a a mural in central Tehran during a drill to contain the new coronavirus.

Iranís deputy health minister says the rate of new infections from the new coronavirus has been declining across most of the countryís 31 provinces.

"In six provinces, the trend of coronavirus infection has had an upward movement and in some provinces, including Isfahan, it has not increased or decreased significantly and has moved in a straight line," Iraj Harirchi said Monday.

The official touched on his ministryís three main strategies in handling the coronavirus outbreak, foremost the stay-at-home restriction.

"The first strategy is to maximize smart social distancing. This means people need to know that the stay-at-home policy should still be in place, and leaving home for unnecessary visits, travels and shopping must be avoided.

"Identifying patients without symptoms is the second strategy. Eighty percent of infected people have either little or no symptoms, who can spread the virus in the society and our efforts are aimed at identifying these individuals in the early stages.

"The third strategy is to identify and isolate people who have been in contact with patients or asymptomatic disease carriers. This step is being experimented in Zanjan province and will be extended to other provinces," Harirchi said.

Identifying these individuals in the family, the workplace, and their interactions and isolating and quarantining them at home is essential because they can spread the virus to others if they become fully infected, he added.

President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday Iran has handled the coronavirus outbreak better than Europe and the United States, adding in fighting the virus, the Iranian people resisted well and assisted each other.

"This is an honor for all, for all our loved ones and people. Yes, our situation is relatively good in the fight against the disease and the dangerous virus, and our situation is better in comparison with some countries," he said.

The novel virus that emerged in central China late last year can cause a potentially fatal respiratory infection called Covid-19. So far, it has killed more than 114,290 people, including 4,474 in Iran, and infected above 1,854,000 worldwide.

Illegal US sanctions have hampered the virus fight in Iran which is battling the Middle Eastís most deadly outbreak.

Iran has requested a $5 billion emergency loan from the International Monetary Fund to battle the outbreak. But the US, which effectively controls the IMF, has signaled it has no intention to allow the loan.

Rouhani said Sunday the country has won a legal "victory" over $1.6 billion of its assets that had long been frozen on a US request in Luxembourg.

"$1.6 billion of our money was in Luxembourg and the Americans had put their hands on it," he said. "After trying for months, we succeeded some days ago and freed this money from the Americansí grasp."

Iran has been employing strict precautionary measures since the virus surfaced in the country. It has heavily ramped up the required health services, including by increasing the number of hospital beds, and shot up production of disinfectants and relevant sanitary items.
