Iran to Ease COVID Restrictions

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The interior minister of Iran unveiled plans to remove many of the coronavirus-related restrictions in the country.

Ahmad Vahidi said on Sunday that many of the pandemic restrictions will be removed in the country with the launch of a scheme for the smart management of implementation of the health protocols as the public vaccination is reaching the final stages.

The start of the smart control of restrictions will ease the situation for people, he noted.

The minister said the smart platform will enforce the necessary protocols as the vaccination program has been advancing and the number of new coronavirus cases and death toll have been on the decline.

On September 30, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi called for the start of the pilot scheme in one of the provinces of the country for the smart management of compliance with the COVID-19 health protocols.

He also weighed plans for the removal of coronavirus-related restrictions on many businesses within a few weeks under the smart management scheme.

The public vaccination program against the coronavirus has gained momentum in Iran in recent weeks with a hike in the imports of vaccine.

The opening of new round-the-clock vaccination centers and inoculation of younger people are seen as the indication that life could soon return to normal for Iranians.
