Timely closure of schools, universities saved 22,000 – Study

The results of a scientific study show that the timely closure of educational centres in Iran has been able to prevent more than 22,000 deaths caused by the coronavirus, reports Iran Front Page.

This scientific study, conducted by the Kerman University of Medical Sciences, also shows that this measure has managed to reduce the number of people admitted to hospitals by about 40% to 50%.

“It may be a little hard to believe these figures,” the study said, “but based on the output of dynamic models, if there was a delay in implementing such a move, the dimensions of the epidemic in March and the spring would have been definitely wider.”
