Iran’s health minister says 6.5 million households have been tested for the novel Coronavirus as part of the country’s National Mobilisation Plan to fight the disease.

Saeed Namaki said currently 31,000 Health centres across the country are engaged in the implementation of the National Plan.

“To date, over 6.5 million households have been monitored and we have introduced the suspected cases to the centres. At these centres the patients are introduced to a specialist or hospital if required. The procedure is being carried out on a daily basis,” reiterated Namaki.
