The cold weather and the night of Yalda’s (longest night of the year) festival ahead are worrying. Coronavirus transmission is from a person to another and progressive. This transmission chain must be broken. Coronavirus is not an insoluble problem. If we accept the restrictions for a while, the pandemic will subside.”
