Iran PressIran news: The President added: "In recent years, the basics of the healthcare system are so strong that anyone who comes to a hospital his or her cost is paid 90% by the government, and you see patients in different countries have to pay $130 for the first test and they also have to pay extra for every day that they are in hospital."

He added: "Our nation should be proud of this plan, all working together and you can see that today we have become more integrated than in previous days."

"Today, alongside the coronary illness, there is unity throughout the country," Hassan Rouhani noted.

"All stores are open 24 hours a day. We are not like other countries where the urgent need for people is a shortcoming."

He commended the people for their cooperation in following the protocols and health instructions, adding, " God forbid if anyone infected with Coronavirus, hiding this issue is a great betrayal because the first people at risk are relatives."

"Today we will pass laws that will treat anyone if they get into the streets with the virus," the president stated.
