Iran recorded 2,483 new cases from the past 24 hours, the country’s Health Ministry said Sunday. This brought the total to 58,226 confirmed cases in the worst-hit country in the Middle East.
While more than 22,000 of those people have recovered, another 151 people died from the respiratory illness in the country bringing the total number to 3,603 which is up by 151 from the day before, the ministry said.
However, Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani said in a TV address on Sunday that “low-risk” economic activities would resume on April 11, but that schools, universities and religious venues will remain closed until April 19.
