To minimize the spread of the coronavirus, hospitals, markets, neighborhoods, transportation and public places are the focus of continuous sanitation operations by authorities in the Iranian capital Tehran.

Every day, they carry out disinfection and cleaning operations in 24 districts, using mist cannon trucks and sprinklers. Waste collection and transfer stations, waste disposal sites and public toilets are also being sanitized and cleaned.

There has been a drop in the number of new cases in Iran, but authorities say they will continue to fight the pandemic like before as there are concerns about a new wave of infections. 

The country has also ramped up the production of personal protective equipment such as masks, protective suits, disinfectants and hand wash. 

Authorities say they still need public support, although disinfecting surfaces that are commonly touched can help kill germs.

Iran has managed to dampen the rate of confirmed cases, while slowly edging out from the lockdown and returning to work, that of course with safety precautions.

The government says it’s important to strike a balance between the measures aimed at curbing the spread of the virus and getting the economy back on track. It maintains that the objective is to protect public lives and health from both the virus and its socio-economic consequences.
