Western countries, including Islamic countries, have also banned religious worship by shutting down the churches, and it is thought that the process will continue for another two and a half months.

According to news agency Associated Press (AP), Ayatollah Khamenei addressed the nation on TV on April 9, saying that because of the outbreak of Corona, worship could also be banned in Ramadan.
It is believed that Iran is the largest country affected by the Coronavirus in Islamic countries, by April 10, the number of people infected had increased to more than 66,000 while the death toll there had increased to over 4,000.
