Speaking on Saturday in the meeting of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus, Dr Hassan Rouhani stated that all those who are obliged to implement the resolutions of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus must come to the stage to fully implement the regulations and resolutions of the headquarters.

"Violation of quarantine by infected people is very dangerous and must be dealt with legally," said Rouhani.

Pointing out that everyone is obliged to implement the resolutions of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus  and should come to the stage with all their might so that the instructions are strictly observed, the President said, "If the regulations we have specified for the red and orange zones are not implemented, the do not yield any effective results".

Dr Rouhani added, "We have to deal with violations because a person who is infected must observe quarantine and must not participate in any gatherings".

The President said, "In fighting coronavirus, if more than 90% of the people follow the instructions, there will be no more waves and very little danger threatens us".

The president said that today the medical staff are tired and suffering, adding, "Someone might say that it would be good if you closed borders and airports so that the British virus would not enter the country, but could anyone in the world do that? Are the European countries that closed the borders and flights safe? They all have the British virus".

The president added, "If the world does fight the virus together, this disease cannot be effectively combatted, and that's why it is called a pandemic".

"The vaccine is undoubtedly effective in both infection and mortality," he said, referring to the vaccine's effectiveness in controlling the coronavirus. 

We have a difficult period of 10 or 15 days ahead of us, he said, adding, "I am sure that if we all join hands and everyone obeys, we will overcome this problem. Regarding vaccines, we are doing our best to get more vaccines into the country, more vaccines to be injected, and more to be produced domestically".

The President added, "In terms of hiring medical staff, all the necessary work has been done. In February, a permit was issued and it is the responsibility of the Ministry of Health to carry out the recruitment work as soon as possible".
