In Iran, in the capital Tehran, despite the COVID-19 epidemic that has not yet ended, numerous small shops are reopening.


People are leaving the regime of self-isolation and are taking on those things that they did not have time to complete before the start of the epidemic; and those who lost their jobs during the period of forced inactivity are now forced to look for a new job. Small businesses and the institution of the self-employed suffered the most from quarantine. Thus, the income of Iranian taxi drivers fell by more than 60%.
