Referring to the World Health Organisation's acknowledgment of Iran's success in controlling the spread of the virus, the President stressed, "The people, authorities and related organs should be careful to save the great success of controlling coronavirus by using masks and heeding health protocols".

"This is more important and difficult than obtaining it," said Rouhani, adding, "We have now achieved great success in controlling the disease in  capitals of provinces with the measures taken and we are getting closer to controlling the virus in other provinces, but what is important is that we may end up in an unpredictable and unpleasant situation due to the unknown behaviours of this virus and non-compliance with the instructions".

Referring to the reports on the red situation in the cities of some provinces, the President stressed the need to provide a definition of indicators in the field of red to consider the safety situation of cities and provinces.

Dr Rouhani continued, "According to this, the restrictions should be implemented in a point-by-point and not integrated manner in the province, and at the same time, these restrictions should be implemented only with the coordination and permission of specialised medical, social and security committees".

The President also described the announcement of warnings and the implementation of restrictions and instructions one of the most important and sensitive points and specified, "Controlling coronavirus without resorting to coercive methods is a brilliant achievement".

Dr Rouhani mentioned the method of persuasion and public education of the people through communication and the media as more effective in the field of methods of adaptation to coronavirus and said, "The medical authorities should give the necessary warnings to the people with transparency".

The President described the use of masks and heeding physical distance very important in preventing the transmission of COVID-19 virus, Adding, "In countries that have used masks in indoor and outdoor gatherings, this has been a significant success in controlling the disease".
