"Unfortunately some Iranians ignored advice from Health Ministry officials and travelled during the (Iranian) New Year holidays ... This could cause a second wave of the coronavirus," Rabiei said, according to state TV.

"All the new trips between cities are banned and violators will be confronted legally."

The country on Wednesday announced 143 new deaths from the coronavirus, raising the official death toll to 2,077.
