Iran E-Commerce Union has issued a statement calling on the public and officials to tap the potentials of online businesses amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus throughout the country, in an effort to minimize outdoor exposure to the disease. 
Released on Saturday on the union’s website,, the statement noted that controlling the rapid spread of the COVID-19 disease is not possible until a national understanding and empathy take shape. 
“Since mid-February when the coronavirus started spreading in the country, health care and social hygiene demands have become a priority for all institutions. The country’s economic units should join and boost the domestic sector against the negative effects of the pandemic and this is not possible without an integrated move,” the statement said.
Sooner or later, the country will leave behind these unfortunate days, but the economic damage caused by the epidemic will definitely affect the fledgling startups, which will need time to recover, the union announced.
