The coronavirus outbreak has not stopped oil production in Iran, the official IRNA news agency quoted Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh as saying on Tuesday.

The ministry has made strenuous efforts not to halt production in the oil industry while protecting its workers, Zanganeh said.

Iran, one of the Middle East countries hit hardest by the new coronavirus, has begun easing restrictions on normal life to support an economy already battered by U.S. sanctions.
