Minoo Mohraz, a member of the scientific committee of the National Coronavirus Combat Taskforce (NCCT) told ISNA, today, “Since June, ever since the new Coronavirus outbreak began, the virus has mutated, and its transmission rate has increased, In such a situation, gatherings can undoubtedly worsen the situation. Most children with Coronavirus are asymptomatic, and their disease is undiagnosed and can transmit the disease. In the current situation, any type of reunion is the worst possible thing to happen and is considered as non-observance of physical distancing that can lead to further spread of the disease. Wherever there is gathering, it can turn in to an epicenter of respiratory viruses.”
