The coronavirus taskforce in Iran announced all public and private organizations and offices will be closed for six days in Tehran and neighboring Karaj Province as the Health Ministry on Tuesday reported 25,441 new COVID-19 cases for the past 24 hours, 213 of which were fatal.

The library, however, said the digital library will be available to viewers on its official website.

The National Library of Iran had to close for nearly a month in April due to the previous surge in COVID cases.

The coronavirus taskforce also said movie theaters will be closed until Monday.
