In light of the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Iran, and following enquires from our members and friends, the Iranian Medical Society would like to offer its community the following update.
There is an ongoing outbreak of coronavirus in Iran, where, unfortunately, there have been a number of fatalities.
According to the latest advice from the Department of Health in the UK, if you have returned from Iran since 19 February you must call NHS 111, and stay indoors and avoid contact with other people even if you do not have symptoms for 14 days.

All of IMS’ upcoming events are due to go ahead as planned, and there is no reason for concern. We will of course be monitoring the NHS and Public Health websites regularly, and we will update our advice accordingly.
