Speaking on Saturday at the first meeting of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus in the year 1400, President Hassan Rouhani said, "In today's meeting, various issues were discussed, including how to provide more vaccines and the arrival of the holy month of Ramadan".

"All our efforts are to ensure that by the end of this government, coronavirus is at an acceptable level," he said, adding, "This disease has endangered the lives of the people, and we are all working hard, and we want the situation to be such that even schools and universities can reopen next year by the end of this government".

Dr Rouhani continued, "I think the peak of this disease is over despite all the different mutations of the virus. The peak of the coronavirus pandemic is declining due to the spread of vaccination".

The President described the year 1399 as a difficult year for the nation because of the coronavirus pandemic as well as sanctions and full-scale economic war, and said, "I would like to thank the people of Iran for observing the protocols".

"I would also like to thank the Supreme Leader of the Revolution for supporting us, and I especially thank the sacrifices of the medical staff who sacrificed their lives to fight the disease," he continued.

Dr Rouhani added, "Today, Iran is in a better position in fighting the dangerous coronavirus than many countries in the world".

The President went on to say that we hope to hand over the office while the coronavirus pandemic is controlled.

Referring to the issues for supplying the vaccine from overseas, he said, "The fact that there are still some countries that are delaying the delivery of vaccines to Iran because of the fear of US sanctions is one of the issues that the economic terrorism of the previous US administration imposed on us, the removal of which is not fully in the hands of Iran".
