Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced that “All provinces in the country have gotten past the final peak of the coronavirus pandemic in its fourth wave and are observing a downward trend in infection rates.”

Speaking at a meeting of the Coronavirus Fight National Headquarters on Saturday, Rouhani said all provinces of Iran have already experienced the coronavirus peak in the fourth wave of the pandemic.

“Despite a surge in the number of infections in the most recent wave of the pandemic, the death toll has equaled that of the third wave, meaning that the health sector has become more skilled at dealing with the disease and the people have observed the health protocols more strictly,” he added.

The Iranian president also declared that “The purchase of 30 million doses of coronavirus vaccine has been finalized and arrangements are being made to import them,” noting that “The homegrown vaccines will be up for public vaccination program by summer.”

Rouhani further described the fight against COVID-19 as a national concern that requires collective cooperation, emphasizing that the sensitive struggle should never be politicized for purposes serving the parties and factions ahead of the presidential election.
