While the regime’s officials and experts warn against the escalation of the Coronavirus outbreak as a result of holding Muharram mourning ceremonies, in a conversation with the Health and Interior Ministers, today, Rouhani “expressed satisfaction and congratulated them for the strict observance of health instructions by the trustees, preachers, and mourners.” In response to the concerns of the ministers of health and interior about the new wave of summer travels, he said: Those who have traveled during the recent holidays should not allow the re-emerging of the virus by not observing the hygiene protocols and in this way hurt the day-to-day and exhausting efforts of medical staff in the face of the second wave of Coronavirus.” Thus, Rouhani who is well aware of the upcoming escalation of the Coronavirus catastrophe as a result of government policies in holding Mourning ceremonies in the coming weeks and months wants to deceitfully absolve the mullahs, and regime preachers of responsibility ahead of time and blame the people for the next wave of the Coronavirus.
