Dr Hassan Rouhani said on Thursday at the meeting of the heads of the committees of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus, "We should all try not to have any inconsistencies and not to send false messages to the society".

Referring to the importance of using the findings and valuable experiences of domestic and foreign people in the fight against coronavirus in this fight, Dr Rouhani said, "The committees of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus are obliged to review strategies and methods in the coming months".

The President stressed, "It is necessary that the Treatment Committee use the findings of this eight-month fight to take special measures at this time to reduce death toll and hospitalisation, and break the chain of infection as a priority".

The President also said, "Extensive, targeted and intelligent tests should be a priority for Treatment Committee".

Dr Rouhani also went on to say, "Intelligent tracking and targeted restrictions on quarantined patients are essential for controlling the virus".

He went on to task the Ministries of Communications and Health with developing and operating a precise application to follow the implementation of the Law on Intensification of Coronavirus-Related Monitoring and Crimes.

Dr Rouhani once again put emphasis on providing coherent, uniform, transparent and awareness-raising information away from unwarranted panic in the society.

In this session, the task force decided on the 50% reduction in the presence of government employees in Tehran by November 20.

Strict restrictions for a period of one week were also decided to be implemented in 43 cities with critical status.
