Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that “low risk” economic activities would resume on April 11 as the country continues to battle an outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

The president did not specify what constitutes “low-risk” activities, but said that “high-risk” ones such as school and large gatherings would continue to be banned until April 18.

The announcement comes as Iran reports a decline in new infections for the fifth straight day, but the number of recorded deaths continue to climb.
