TEHRAN, April 7 (Xinhua) -- All of Iranian provinces' capitals have been categorized as "red zones" with high risk concerns pertaining to the new wave of COVID-19 in the country, Tasnim News Agency reported on Wednesday.

The red zones were displayed in a demographic map released on Wednesday by the Ministry of Health and Medical Education, the report said.

Many of the Iranian provincial capitals were in the blue, or risk-free, category during the Iranian New Year holidays beginning on March 21.

Travels and visits during the New Year have resulted in the new surge of the COVID-19 cases across the country. Over the past days, the number of daily infections in the country has hit an all-time high.

Iran has registered nearly 2 million coronavirus cases with more than 63,500 deaths. Enditem
