Iran reports lowest daily COVID deaths in 18 weeks

Iranian President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi called for stronger support for the scientists and experts engaged in the production of homegrown vaccines for the coronavirus.

Addressing a session of the National Headquarters for Managing and Fighting the Coronavirus, the president hailed the Iranian scientists and experts for their worthy efforts to make vaccines for COVID-19 inside the country, according to Tasnim News Agency.

Raeisi stressed that the Iranian producers of vaccine must receive legal and financial support.

The president also called for continued and strict compliance with the health protocols to prevent the spread of the pandemic in the country.

He emphasized that the reopening of educational centers and businesses must conform with the health regulations.

Senior high schools reopened in the country as of Saturday.

A reduction in the coronavirus death toll and cases should by no means lead to laxity in the observance of the health protocols, the president noted.

On Saturday, the number of patients who died of the coronavirus infection in Iran stood at 120, the lowest daily death toll since July 3.

The Iranian Health Ministry put the total deaths from COVID-19 at 127,173.

It also reported 6,803 new positive cases across the country.

More than 54.76 million Iranians have received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine so far, while over 37.78 million have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.
