Health minister: Iran among top countries battling coronavirus

Health Minister Bahram Einollahi says Iran is recognized as one of the top ten countries battling the coronavirus pandemic.

In an address to a parliament session on Tuesday, the health minister hailed efforts to contain the outbreak and acquire Covid-19 vaccines to immunize the population.

Einollahi said the reopening of schools and businesses and the increase in New Year travels were the result of extensive efforts by the Health Ministry and the people from all walks of life to contain the outbreak.
