COVID-19 situation improving in Iran due to observing restrictions

– Iranian Minister of Health, Treatment and Medical Education Saeed Namaki on Wednesday said that the situation of COVID-19 has been improved because of observing restrictions in the country.

Namaki underlined that the situation in the country, particularly in the cities where the restrictions were carried out in November, is becoming better.

Fortunately, due to quarantine, mortality statistics are declining and the effects of new restrictions will become evident in the coming weeks, he underscored.

Ambulatory clinics in the country should be increased to at least 5,000 to pave the way for the people to have better access to the diagnostic, health and testing centers, the official underlined.

Earlier today, Iranian Health Ministry spokeswoman Sima Sadat Lari said that some 362 people in Iran have died as a result of the coronavirus disease over the past 24 hours.
