In response to the letter of the Minister of Health and Medical Education, and Head of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus Dr Saeed Namaki, President Hasan Rouhani appreciated the hard work of doctors, nurses and medical staff.

President Hassan Rouhani wrote:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Dear Dr Namaki,

Honourable Minister of Health and Medical Education, and Head of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus,

Appreciating your efforts and praising the dedication of the doctors, nurses, and medical staff, I humbly state that the sacrifice of your coworkers, who stand at the forefront of protecting citizens, will remain in the historical memory of our nation. Our beloved country Iran is proud of having these responsible men and women.

As I stated at the session of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus and the cabinet session, the sole source and reference of decision-making regarding coronavirus is that Task Force alone, and all the organs and institutions in the country will be obliged to comply with its decisions and regulations.

In order to create order, discipline, and synergy for all government, service, nongovernmental, or executive bodies in fulfilling their task and the important mission of public health care, as emphasised in the government, we need decisive, scientific, and focused decisions. Therefore, any decision will be solely made by the Task Force.

Kindly arrange for the necessary measures for online public education through the national media in case of closure of educational centres in coordination with the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, as well as the IRIB, so that our dear children's education is not affected.

All executive agencies, public bodies, charity organisations, Friday prayer headquarters, mosque affairs centre, military, law enforcement, judicial and religious authorities are required to comply with and execute the decisions of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus.

Should any organ fail to execute the decisions of that Task Force, promptly report the cases to me so that they are pursued through authorities.

I also approve all decisions made by the Task Force, which are addressed in your letter, including the proposed restrictions and closure of training centres.

I call on the noble and honorable people of Iran to refrain from unnecessary travel in these special and dangerous circumstances, with tolerance, empathy, calmness and serious care, and compliance with health recommendations for the prevention and control of the disease.

Certainly the great, understanding, responsible and resistant Iranian nation that has gone through much harder and tougher stages, will overcome this problem with tact. We are all together and will definitely defeat corona.

Hassan Rouhani

President of the Islamic Republic of Iran
