Iran, the crucible of coronavirus in the Middle East, smashed two grim records this week, reporting its largest number of deaths in a single 24 hours since the outbreak started in March, and the largest number of new infections.

Iranian health officials openly admit Iran is deep into its third, and biggest, wave of the disease, and evidence suggests an exhausted and impoverished country is struggling to cope as trust in government diminishes, sanctions weaken the economy and hospitals report overcrowded intensive care units.

Mohammad Talebpour, the director of Sina hospital, the oldest in Tehran, predicted that if Iranians did not collectively take action and the disease persisted for another 18 months, as many as 300,000 could die. He said a third of the medical staff at his hospital had at one point contracted the disease.

Covid-19 has so far killed 29,070 Iranians, according to widely challenged official statistics, including 254 on Wednesday alone, just down on the daily record set on 12 October of 272.

The number of people newly infected in the previous 24 hours was recorded as 4,108 on Wednesday, just down on the record of 4,392 on 8 October.

In an attempt to force reluctant Iranians to abide by social distancing rules, including the compulsory wearing of face masks in public, Hassan Rouhani’s government has introduced fines of up to $6.60, initially in Tehran.

Businesses face fines that could rise to $30 on the third offence. Since the monthly minimum wage is worth less than $60 after a sharp fall in the value of the currency, these fines are not trivial, but even so the health minister, Saeed Namaki, said he feared they would not be high enough to act as a deterrent.

Masks have been compulsory in indoor public spaces since July.

But Rouhani is an innately cautious centrist, nervous of a public backlash, and concerned by the state of the economy now predicted by the International Monetary Fund to contract by 5% this year. The government spokesman Ali Rabiei stressed on Tuesday that the fines were “a tool to achieve compliance, and not a goal in itself. The fine is a warning to exercise self-discipline”. He insisted all the income from the fines would go to the ministry of health to fight coronavirus.

No one knows if the fines will be rigorously imposed, or the punishment likely to be inflicted on those unable to pay. The police, the Basij paramilitary force and health inspectors will have powers to impose the fines, and offenders will have two weeks to make payment into a health ministry account,

But the much-criticised sight of Iranian police this week parading criminals on the back of trucks is a reminder, if needed, of the methods security services can deploy.

Iran has not hidden the disputes between officials over its handling of the crisis.

Bright and Fit Fitness App by Alice Veglio is Breaking Records in Italy

Alice Veglio is an Italian international model who started her career as a fitness trainer. Before moving to Dubai in 2018, Alice developed a holistic approach to fitness, wellness and healthcare, and founded a startup that achieved a turnover of 500,000 Euros in less than two years

Bright and fit fitness App reached an annual turnover of half million euros, by promoting a new concept of feminine empowerment.

The project was born as a new fitness startup and it’s breaking every record in Italy.

The founder is Alice Veglio, an international model and entrepreneur living in Dubai.

We interviewed Alice to better understand the beginning and the evolution of her entrepreneurial idea.

Q: Is there something that inspired you to take this new entrepreneurial path?

A: During my studying career, I approached my education by following a double path. On one hand, I had a University Degree in Economics and Business Management, on the other hand, I attended the Leonardo Da Vinci University in Rome (one of the most distinguished University in Italy for holistic sciences), where I got several certifications as fitness and wellness coach.

After completing my studies I joined financial and fitness skills together, so I worked on a new startup where fitness and wellness would have been able to work together as a whole.

I set the new goal to make holistic fitness popular among ordinary people. I hired some workers to create my staff and I began to share the concept online.

Before starting my academic career, I attended a series of internship in the United Arab Emirates since I was 18. The potential of digital business has always fascinated me.

Q: Did you encounter any difficulties when you started working on your startup?

A: Yes. The major difficulty I found was promoting the concept of holistic fitness, because it was something very little known in Italy.

Educating people on the benefits brought by holistic fitness is difficult, because it’s a disruptive concept of wellness, which puts the happiness of the single person on the same level as the results gained with training and exercises.

In our society, it’s commonly spread the misconception that it requires a strict diet connected with the loss of emotional happiness to have a perfect body.

Holistic fitness works on developing health and wellness from a unique perspective where mindset, nutrition and fitness are developed simultaneously.

The second difficulty I faced was about promoting the fitness from home, as people are used adapt themselves to gym timetables and rules, along with the stress caused by having to find a place to park the car somewhere when they want to hit the gym.

I wanted to develop a new fitness concept linked to digital business. What separated women from achieving their physical and health goals was the lack of time. My program offers the comfort of being able to always have your personal trainer with you without the need to go out.
