As part of the capital’s Grand Bazaar reopens following the resumption of "low-risk business" that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced last week, APA reports citing Sputnik.

The death toll has been below 100 for four days in a row, and the number of new cases is way off the peak on 30 March, when over 3,100 new cases were confirmed in a single day.

This marks a significant slowdown in the outbreak in the Islamic Republic, which has been among the worst-affected countries in the world.
