Passenger and freight rail transport firms could suffer a loss of 37 million U.S. dollars by mid-June due to the spread of novel coronavirus, Secretary of Iran's Guild of Rail Transport Companies, Mehrdad Taqizadeh said on Sunday.
The number of rail passengers fell by 94 percent during the Iranian New Year holidays (March 20-April 3) compared with last year's similar period, Taqizadeh was quoted by Financial Tribune daily as saying.
