The president of Islamic Azad University has stated that IAU hospitals and medical centers have been applying all of their capacity in combating the outbreak of coronavirus.

According to an ISCA report, Dr. Mohammad Mehdi Tehranchi explained IAU's necessary measures in combating the new coronavirus and stated that unfair imposed sanctions have caused many problems for the country's international economy, so during the closure of schools, universities, higher educational institutions and organizations in several cities, we must act intelligently and pay significant attentions with necessary considerations.

Dr. Tehranchi also expressed gratitude to the medical staff and deputy of IAU Tehran Medical Branch and noted that Islamic Azad University is applying all of its capacity to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

According to the latest reports, coronavirus has caused 2,867 deaths, while 83,863 people have been diagnosed with the illness across the globe.

The virus is spreading in the Middle East, Europe and other parts of the world, as Brazil confirmed its first case in Latin America, while parts of China begin to lower their emergency response level as the number of new cases reported there continues to slow.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has said countries should use quarantine against the deadly new coronavirus only when they are truly needed.

Addressing the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on Thursday, Michelle Bachelet hailed medical teams around the world working to rein in the COVID-19 outbreak, but said respect for human rights needed to guide the response.
