Experts in Iran cautioned Friday that they may utilize “force” to confine travel all through the nation after declaring updated figures from the new coronavirus that has kept on spreading inside the Islamic Republic.
Health Ministry representative Kianoush Jahanpour declared that 124 individuals in the nation have died from the virus and another 4,747 have been tainted, during a news conference. He didn’t give points of interest on the risk of force.
The declaration comes as authorities raised worries over the closing of schools and universities as a reason to take trips to travel spots in the nation, The Associated Press detailed. Semiofficial news organizations in Iran indicated long traffic lines of vehicles attempting to arrive at the Caspian coast.
On Thursday, Tehran said it would have checkpoints to restrain travel between significant cities with an end goal to keep the virus from spreading further. Authorities canceled Friday prayers the nation over to prevent huge gatherings.
In Tehran, firefighters sprayed storefronts and ATMs along the length of Valiasr Avene, one of the city’s significant thoroughfares.
Iran has one of the highest death tolls from the virus outside of mainland China, where it has killed thousands since it since December.
