Iran's Khamenei warned that if the virus spreads, the economy will collapse

Iran's Supreme Leader warned Saturday that the uncontrolled spread of the Coronavirus novel would worsen the country's economic problems, saying it had to be added to the "wand".

The Islamic Republic has been struggling to prevent the spread of COVID-19 since the first reported cases in the Shia holy city of Kom in February.

It shut down unwanted businesses, shut down schools, and canceled public programs in March, but the government has gradually lifted sanctions since April and sought to reopen the nation's restriction-economy. App.

Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said: "It is correct to say that something must be done to prevent the economic problems caused by the coronavirus."

"But if neglect and disease spread significantly, financial problems will increase," he said at a meeting with law enforcement officials, according to his official website.

According to analysts, Iran Real has recently hit a new high with the US dollar due to the temporary economy closure, border closures, and stagnation in non-oil exports.

Iran's economic problems have worsened since 2018 when President Donald Trump withdrew the US from an important nuclear deal and re-imposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic, targeting important oil sales and banking relations.

A total of 2,456 cases of Covid-19 infection have been reported in the past 24 hours, a spokesman for the Iranian health ministry said.

According to Sima Saadat Lauri, 125 people died in the same period and the total number of deaths was 10,364.

"The sacrifices of the health workers, the efforts of the charity, and the collective support of the people have made Iran one of the most successful countries in the world," Khamenei said.

"But it was early (outbreak), and now, unfortunately, that speed and effort has spread to some people and authorities," he said.

Official figures show an increasing trajectory of newly confirmed cases since the beginning of May, with Iran reaching a nearly two-month low in daily reported infections.

Iran has imposed a mandatory lockdown on the people to prevent the virus from spreading, but it is mandatory to wear masks.
