Speaking on Saturday at the meeting of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus, Dr Hassan Rouhani said, “To implement these requirements, all governmental and non-governmental organisations must work together and we can certainly implement the guidelines and avoid gatherings and reduce traffic to be successful in implementing this plan”.

 “The main goal is to control the spread of the virus in this way and identify infected people faster and treat them, and take good care of those who must be quarantined, while reducing gatherings and traffic,” said Rouhani.

The President pointed out, "If in the past people were told to follow the health protocols to ensure their own and relatives’ health, and to reduce the pressure on the medical staff, today, in addition to those recommendations, everyone must carefully follow the health principles to avoid economic pressure as soon as possible”.

Dr Rouhani described the first requirement in the successful implementation of the comprehensive plan as people’s responsibility-taking and said, "Research shows that by talking, droplets can transmit the disease quickly, and since masks are not usually used in gatherings, if a person with the disease starts talking, he or she can transmit the disease to the rest of the group”.

The President called the executive guarantee of the resolutions the second requirement in this regard and said, "All resolutions of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus and the operational headquarters, and the instructions of the Ministry of Health should be fully implemented and operational, and the responsible agencies in this regard should carefully monitor patients”.

Dr Rouhani added, "Today we discussed that all people who enter the society must have a national card or a valid ID card with a national number on it in order for us to prevent the infected from entering the society and provide services to them”.

The President emphasised the cooperation of governmental and non-governmental organisations as the third requirement and said, "In the implementation of the comprehensive plan, all institutions must work together”.

Dr Rouhani called the fourth requirement the help of donors, Basij, the Red Crescent and even the NGOs and said, "Everyone should help in this regard, especially those who are in quarantine, and today it was announced that 100,000 quick tests will be performed daily”.

The President mentioned timely, transparent and clear information as the next requirement and said, "The decisions and resolutions that are taken should be explained to the people in a timely and clear language”.

Dr Rouhani added, "Unnecessary gatherings and traffic should be avoided, so one of the resolutions was to reduce night traffic from 9 pm, of course, we should also add complementary plans".

The President mentioned the broadcasting of fun programmes on the radio and television as another requirement and said, "The IRIB should have fun programmes for people’s leisure time”.

Dr Rouhani mentioned supportive and compensatory measures as another requirement and said, "Since businesses and economic activities will be closed for two weeks, we must help the people as much as possible, and in this regard we had a resolution that 100,000 Tomans will be paid for about 30 million people per month until the end of the year”.

The President stated, "If we carefully implement the comprehensive plan with the requirements mentioned above, there will be no need for even a one-hour shutdown, and there is no doubt that by following the instructions and requirements, we can shorten the shutdown period and reduce the spread of the disease”.
