Speaking on Saturday at the meeting of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus, Dr Hassan Rouhani said that collective and individual care must be considered as an inviolable principle, adding that gatherings should be prohibited and, in special cases, limited to the essentials.

Now is not the time to hold festivals and seminars, and even if our friends in the Ministry of Health have any problems with the holding of the university entrance exam, we will develop a framework for it so that no problem arises, said Rouhani.

Appreciating the efforts of all economic activists, the executive branch, the armed forces and other branches, the President said, "Businesses, economic activities and openings must continue with full observance of health protocols and there is no second way".

Dr Rouhani stated, "Closing businesses and economic activities is not possible for a long time and no government or people accept this. We all need to come to the stage and convince people that in the process of fighting coronavirus, it is necessary to follow the health protocols and we have no other choice”.

"Our scientists are trying to find the drugs and vaccine needed for coronavirus, but the important thing is that the disease must not be hidden, and secrecy in this field is violating the rights of others," the president said, thanking the people for keeping their physical distance and using masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Dr Rouhani added, "In today's meeting, the method and strategies of monitoring the recent instructions of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus regarding the obligation to use masks in public areas were examined and the duties of ministries, agencies, unions, guilds and, if necessary, the judiciary were discussed”.

Emphasising that the decisions of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus are binding as laws, the President said, "No one should doubt the strict and complete implementation of the instructions of the task force, and if everyone uses masks, observes their physical distance, regularly washes and hands and forgets some bad habits, we will definitely pass the test against this vicious virus”.
