30-35 million Iranians likely to be exposed to coronavirus in coming months: President Rouhani

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s President described using masks, observing physical distancing and avoiding gatherings along with strict observance of health protocols as a great contribution to the health of the society and the process of fighting coronavirus, and stressed that we will undoubtedly win this battle.

Speaking on Saturday at the meeting of the National Task Force for Fighting Coronavirus, Dr. Hassan Rouhani said, "At the same time, people should not be anxious. We should advise people to both the right and patience, but we should not create anxiety in them or make them overwhelmed. Winning against this disease may be a little difficult and time consuming, but we will definitely win and we must stand firm and know that victory is certain".

"According to the Deputy of the Ministry of Health for Research Affairs, 30 to 35 million people are likely to be exposed to the disease in the coming months," the president said, adding that everyone should work together to strictly follow health protocols to break the chain of the disease.

Reiterating the importance of full compliance with health protocols, Dr. Rouhani said, "According to the same report, out of every one thousand people who are infected with coronavirus, 500 are asymptomatic and these pose the greatest risk of transmitting coronavirus to others".

In another part of his speech, the President said that coronavirus is a pandemic and universal disease, saying, "In such circumstances, any nation can rely only on its own strength, and this shows that the national strength of the country, especially in the fields of health, science and research, and economy must be to the extent that we can manage ourselves".

Dr. Rouhani stated, "Capability, belief, national trust and not needing others are the main lessons that coronavirus has taught us".

The President continued by emphasizing that along with the comprehensive fight against coronavirus, national and societal resilience in both health and economic sectors should increase, saying, "The process of production and employment must continue and, in this framework, it is necessary to follow health instructions strictly in production centres".

Dr. Rouhani also reiterated his appreciation of the country's medical staff, saying, "It is necessary to maintain the health, motivation and calmness of the human resources of the health defence front".
