New York, March 18, IRNA – Iranian PhD student at the University of Maryland said that she and her friends have initiated campaign to help reduce the number of times the elderly at risk go out of their homes during the epidemic.

Speaking to IRNA correspondent in New York, Zahra Rahmati said, "Let me remind the people at these difficult days that some people, the elderly in particular, may not be able to go out of their homes and need some others to go out and buy their basic needs such as medicine."
