Dr Rouhani also appreciated the efforts made by the governor general and other local officials, as well as the medical staff of Khorasan Razavi hospitals and medical centres, saying, "Given the situation in Mashhad, there is a heavy burden on your shoulders and the decline in the number of people in this city means that people followed health advice and cooperated”.
