Many cities across the country have introduced social distancing practices to slow the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Iran (IMNA) -The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is travelling around the world, hitting many cities in Asia, Europe and the U.S. Some cities seem more vulnerable to the devastating impacts of the virus.

Population density is a key factor in this pandemic; clustering of people make cities to be in danger of infectious diseases.

Many Iranians in recent weeks have stayed home and begun working remotely, helping the health care system of the country.

Lockdowns and closures are all attempts to execute social distancing, the main important public health intervention that can help hindering transmission of the Coronavirus.

Iran has temporarily banned traffic on some certain cities, and repurposed streets into car-free zones, giving people more space to practice social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.

Creating safe urban spaces is the chief concern for city managers and policy makers.

Such measures, which are currently in place, will aid in the prevention of spreading Coronavirus.
