Tehran municipality has increased its mass disinfection measures on a daily basis, targeting the capital’s transportation fleet and streets to counter the spread of COVID-19.

As a preventive measure against the contagion, the Tehran municipality and fire department workers have been sterilizing main streets and public places with disinfectant as well as the city’s transportation network on a daily basis, spraying down a blend of bleach, chlorine, and detergents on curbs, benches, street signs, utility poles, taxi, and buses.
As more and more people are quarantining themselves at home, significantly fewer cars and pedestrians have been seen on the streets.
