As of Monday, April 27, Iranian authorities have confirmed 90,481 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases nationwide, with 5710 associated deaths. Iranian officials have also announced that they plan to reopen mosques in regions that have been consistently free of COVID-19.

Iranian authorities previously announced on Wednesday, April 22, the easing of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions despite a continued rise in death toll rates. Parks, gardens, and recreational areas were opened as part of the easing measures while gyms, restaurants, and cafés will remain closed until further notice. School and large gatherings also remain suspended under the current restrictions.

Additionally, government offices also began reopening nationwide from Saturday, April 11, with the exception of Tehran. Despite the easing in restrictions, President Hassan Rouhani has urged Iranians to continue to respect health protocols in place to guard against the spread of the virus.

Further international spread of the virus is expected.


The first case of COVID-19 was reported on December 31 and the source of the outbreak has been linked to a wet market in Wuhan (Hubei province, China). Human-to-human and patient-to-medical staff transmission of the virus have been confirmed. Many of the associated fatalities have been due to pneumonia caused by the virus.

Cases of the virus have been confirmed in numerous countries and territories worldwide. Virus-screening and quarantining measures are being implemented at airports worldwide, as well as extensive travel restrictions. On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the global outbreak a pandemic.

Pneumonia symptoms include dry cough, chest pain, fever, and trouble breathing. Pneumonia can be contagious and can be transmitted from human to human. The influenza virus, or the flu, is a common cause of viral pneumonia.


Measures adopted by local authorities evolve quickly and are usually effective immediately. Depending on the evolution of the outbreak in other countries, authorities are likely to modify, at very short notice, the list of countries whose travelers are subject to border control measures or entry restrictions upon their arrival to the territory in question. It is advised to postpone nonessential travel due to the risk that travelers may be refused entry or be subject to quarantine upon their arrival or during their stay.

To reduce the risk of transmission, travelers are advised to abide by the following measures:

  • Frequently clean hands by applying an alcohol-based hand rub or washing with soap and water.
  • When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue; if used, throw the tissue away immediately and wash hands.
  • If experiencing a fever, cough, difficulty breathing, or any other symptoms suggestive of respiratory illness, including pneumonia, call emergency services before going to the doctor or hospital to prevent the potential spread of the disease.
