Iran's president says economy is a factor in virus response.

Volunteers in protective suits spray disinfectant on storefronts to help curb the spread of the coronavirus in Kabul, Afghanistan, Sunday, March 29, 2020. The government Friday ordered a three-week lock-down for Kabul to stem the spread of the new coronavirus.

Syria has closed schools, restaurants and nightclubs, and imposed a nighttime curfew last week aimed at preventing the virus' spread. Itscare system has been battered by nearly a decade of civil war, leaving the country particularly vulnerable. “Health is a principle for us, but the production and security of society is also a principle for us," Rouhani said at a Cabinet meeting. “We must put these principles together to reach a final decision."Even before the pandemic, Rouhani was under fire for the unraveling of the 2015 nuclear deal he concluded with the United States and other world powers. President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S.

Iran has urged the international community to lift sanctions and is seeking a $5 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund. “Bahraini officials have said they will send a flight for them at some undefined point in the future,” the Qatari government said in a statement.
