The head office reporter learned that in Kum City, where the epidemic is more serious, there are two designated hospitals providing more than 600 beds, and two standby hospitals can be put into use at any time. Irans Islamic Revolutionary Guard also cooperates with the Kum municipal government to disinfect the streets and public places of Kum twice a week, and to repack and pack the medical packages (including masks, epidemic prevention manuals, etc.). In Tehran, the capital city with a rapid growth of confirmed cases, there are 9 designated hospitals with relatively sufficient beds. Kum city is located about 130 kilometers south of Tehran City, which shows that the current Iranian epidemic has a cluster outbreak.

Most of Irans sports events have been cancelled, except that individual sports events can be held without spectators.

Local Iranian people also strictly abide by the epidemic prevention measures, wear masks and gloves to go out, and remind people around to strengthen the prevention and control.
March 21 is the nuruzi festival in Iran, which is equivalent to the Spring Festival in China. In the past, in early March, Iranians would purchase on a large scale, but now people are beginning to avoid gathering in the market.
