Tehran, June 2, IRNA - About 2,300 Iranians, who could not return home by plane as the flights were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, arrived in the country from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) by ferries on Tuesday.

Six sea travels with two passenger ships transported the Iranians, official in charge of coordinating anti-coronavirus measures in Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization Changiz Javadpour said.  

Javadpour added that social distancing rules and health protocols are being followed at different ports while the preemptive measures have also been taken there.

In Iran, the number of dead is about 8,000.
