In Iran, self-isolation of patients with coronavirus was required

Those infected with coronavirus are obliged to self-isolate, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said, speaking about the decisions of the headquarters to counteract the coronavirus in the country.

“If a person understands that the test gave a positive result, that is, it finally became clear that he was ill, infected with this virus, then he must put himself in quarantine. If he feels ill, naturally, he goes to the hospital. If he feels normal, he puts himself in quarantine,” Rouhani said on IRINN TV.

According to him, despite being in good health, a sick person should not go out on the street: stay either at home, if there are such opportunities, or contact specially designated institutions.

Violation of the self-isolation regime for patients with coronavirus will be prosecuted, for which there will be a penalty, Rouhani said, adding that the authorities extended the previously imposed “strict restrictions” until April 8, they included travel around the country.

At the moment, more than 41 thousand cases of infection have been detected in Iran since February 19, when the authorities first reported the coronavirus, of which 2,757 were fatal. At the same time, almost 14 thousand people recovered.
