Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has warned of a potential "fourth wave" of cases as infections rise in some areas of the country, APA reports citing BBC.

He said some cities in the south-western province of Khuzestan were now categorised as "red" - the highest alert level.

"This is a warning for all of us," President Rouhani said on state television earlier today.

"This means the beginning of moving towards the fourth wave. We all have to be vigilant to prevent this," he added.

Iran started its vaccination campaign on Tuesday, and the first shipment of doses arrived on February 4.
