Omid Shokoohi has lost count of the number of days he’s been at home.
“At first, the government said, ‘Stay home for two weeks',” he said. “Then, another two weeks. And another. It never ends.”
Shokoohi lives in Tehran, Iran’s capital. Before the pandemic, he worked as a tour guide and made a decent living — enough, he said, to allow him to set aside some savings. Now, his life has been turned upside down. His business is dead, and he’s lost all his clients.
