In past months, several artists have contracted coronavirus because of working in cinematic and TV projects.
The Iranian director Borzou Niknejad says observing COVID-19 protocols while producing a film is impossible. He says, “When we are making a series almost 80 people use a single bathroom, we have to remove our masks, and the makeup artist has to work on several artists at the same time. How can we observe the protocols?”
