Based on the report by Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade, needed detergents will be supplied and disinfectants, masks and other medical equipment, which have been scarce due to unusual consumption or other issues, will be supplied soon.

The Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, in its report, also reported an increase in urban and interurban travel, describing it against medical and health advice that causes coronavirus to spread throughout the country.

In addition, the President instructed the responsible agencies to exercise all their legal powers to create economic, banking, livelihood and medical facilities.

Dr Rouhani also issued instructions to supply medical supplies from inside and outside the country.

The President went on to urge people to take medical advice seriously and avoid unnecessary urban and interurban trips to shorten the time period for the prevention of the outbreak of coronavirus in the country so that dear citizens can return to their normal life as soon as possible.

As approved by the Cabinet, lifting the ban on imports and imposing restrictions on exports and changing tariffs on items needed by the Ministry of Health and Medical Education to meet the needs of health centres and the public for countering and containing coronavirus was granted to the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade.
