Speaking on Saturday at the meeting of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus, Dr Hassan Rouhani said that fortunately, due to the efforts and self-sacrifices of the medical staff, as well as the observance of protocols and implementation of health instructions by the people, the declining trend of death cases has started in all provinces and we have put the peak of the 4th wave behind".

Stating that fighting coronavirus has always had two wings and the nation and the government are its two wings, Dr Rouhani said, "People have observed the protocols and implemented health guidelines and the government has provided the infrastructure, equipment and needs, which has helped us control the disease. These two wings must work together so that we can overcome this problem".

Dr Rouhani pointed out: "Forecasts show that at least until the end of the year, we must continue to follow the health instructions seriously, and what is certain is that the virus is mutating under different names and still does not have a definitive cure and the main way to control it is strict implementation of health protocols".

The President added, "What is promising is that the vaccine entered the market shorter than previously thought, and today the world is working hard to produce the vaccine. But at the same time, the production of vaccines does not meet the need for vaccines and there is not enough in the world, so far only a few countries have been able to vaccinate their people relatively well".

Dr Rouhani also stated that there is not enough vaccine in our country, adding, "Due to this restriction, we had to prioritise high-risk groups for vaccination, and in this regard, the elderly and those with underlying conditions were given first priority".

Emphasising that the necessary effort and care must be taken in the vaccine distribution phase, Dr Rouhani said, "The first phase in vaccination is to prevent mortality and the next phase, which covers about 70% of the population, is to cut the chain of the disease".

The president said that some people think that we officials used the vaccine first, adding, "I honestly say that I have not been vaccinated yet because it is not my turn and I do not know any high-level official in the country that has taken the vaccine except within the framework of the national vaccination document and all officials can take the vaccine like other people within the framework of the document".

Dr Rouhani also mentioned people's health in the 1400 elections and said, "We have made every effort for the elections to be done well and safely, and the necessary predictions have been made for the election day".
