According to the operational base of the task force, the increase in Nowruz trips and the lack of serious observance of health protocols has caused the growth rate of the disease in some cities.

Referring to the report, the President said, "Considering that in mid-March, many cities were relatively calm and their colours were not red and orange, there were no travel restrictions, but the officials advised people not to travel to these cities so as not to face a new wave".

Dr Hassan Rouhani said, "People are still advised not to travel and if they have travelled for any reason, they should make it shorter".

Emphasising that the people are strongly advised to refrain from traveling for the coming weeks, the President added, "We ask those who decide to travel to reconsider their travel plan, and if for any reason they are forced to travel, maximum observance of protocols, avoiding gatherings and taking health concerns and warnings seriously are important".

Appreciating the efforts and measures taken to accelerate the production of domestic vaccines, Dr Rouhani said, "It is an honour that we have been able to succeed in producing the COVID-19 vaccine and get closer to the final stages despite all the difficulties, and these successes have been achieved while many developed and advanced countries in the field of medicine have not yet reached a safe vaccine".

The President expressed hope that by producing a domestic vaccine and providing a reliable foreign vaccine, it will be possible to vaccinate the whole society by the end of the year 1400, and said, "Without a doubt, with the efforts in this field and people's cooperation, year 1400 will be the year of overcoming coronavirus".
