Iran says virus infections show 'gradual' decline

Iran says virus infections show 'gradual' decline”

The total number of cases diagnosed with the disease reached 55,743, of whom 4,103 are in critical condition, he said on state TV.

"Undisputed fact: USA "diplomats" have always been in the business of coups, arming terrorists, fueling sectarian violence", tweeted Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi.

Iran has repeatedly stated that the United States economic sanctions are taking the Iranian people's lives, as the country is battling against the novel coronavirus.

Iran's death toll stood at 3,739 on Monday, with more than 60,500 infected.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) said the United States could become the new epicentre of the pandemic due to the "very large acceleration" in infections there.

The statement was drawn up by two groups - The Iran Project, a US organization working to foster dialogue between the United States and Iran and take a bipartisan approach to keep Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons; and the European Leadership Network, a London-based group of leaders seeking practical solutions to political and security challenges.

Iranian authorities say those sanctions have hampered their efforts to curb the outbreak, urging other countries and the United Nations to call on the USA to lift them.

A group of 24 former senior world officials called on the administration of US President Donald Trump on Monday to ease unilateral sanctions imposed on the Islamic republic as a means of saving "potentially hundreds of thousands of lives" amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"They [the US] are trying to force Tehran to accept negotiations with America", Mousavi said.

Iranian media have reported unrest in several prisons in the country, including the March 27 mass escape from the facility in Kurdistan province.

The statement says: "Though never meant to kill, U.S. "maximum pressure" through sanctions on Iran are compromising the performance of the Iranian healthcare system as Iran's outbreak moves into its second month".

Businesses deemed "high-risk" for Covid-19, as well as most of the education sector, will not resume operations until the end of April, Rouhani said.
