    Breaking: Iran to shut border with Iraq after surge in coronavirus cases

    Iran’s minister of interior unveiled plans to shut the border with Iraq in the southwestern Province of Khuzestan in order to contain a new wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

    According to Tasnim news agency, speaking to reporters on Saturday, Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said the Coronavirus Fight National Headquarters has made new decisions to control the coronavirus in Khuzestan Province, where the number of COVID-19 cases has risen in recent days.

    He said the border crossings with Iraq are going to be closed and travels between cities in the Khuzestan Province will be prohibited.

    He also expressed hope that cooperation from people would help control the situation in Khuzestan ahead of the new Iranian year’s holidays.

    Officials have warned that the coronavirus has begun to spread rapidly in Khuzestan, stressing the need for new travel bans and strict control at the border.

    Several cities in the southwestern Iranian province have been categorized as red zones with high risk of infection.
