The only way to avoid the 5th wave of the disease is to fully comply with health protocols/ the need to use experiences of previous waves of the virus to prevent the 5th wave

The meeting of the chairmen of the specialised committees of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus was held on Thursday in the presence of President Hassan Rouhani.

According to a report, due to the high rate of spread of the Delta variant of coronavirus, following health instructions is still the best way to control and combat this disease and prevent its spread in other parts of the country.

In this regard, the President emphasised the need for full observance of health protocols by the people and the application of serious and accurate supervision in this regard by the responsible and supervisory bodies.

Dr Rouhani added, "Considering the atmosphere we are in, in order not to face the previous restrictions and the cities not to turn red again, we need to fully observe the protocols so that we do not have to impose severe restrictions again".

Regarding vaccination, the President emphasised, "By eliminating the shortage of vaccines through the import of foreign vaccines and the use of domestically produced vaccines that have obtained public injection licenses, vaccination operations based on the national document and priorities have been accelerated and the government promises to vaccinate the target group by the end of its term".

Dr Rouhani also instructed the Advertising and Information Committee to raise awareness in the public that vaccination could not be a reason for non-compliance with the protocols.

The President stressed, "In no way should those foreign nationals who are infected with this virus enter the country".
