Iran reopens shops-highways amid coronavirus
Iran began opening intercity highways and major shopping centres on Monday to stimulate its economy, gambling that it has brought under control its coronavirus outbreak.
Stores from high-end malls to the meandering alleyways of Tehran’s historic Grand Bazaar opened doors, though the government limited their working hours until 6 p.m. Restaurants, gyms and other locations remain closed.
Iran’s outbreak has killed 5,297 people with 84,802 reported cases. Deaths and new cases continue to be reported.
