Tehran mayor discusses coronavirus with Muscat, Istanbul counterparts

Tehran, April 21, IRNA – Tehran Mayor Pirouz Hanachi in an online video conference with Muscat and Istanbul counterparts reiterated that the only way for countering coronavirus pandemic is the international consensus.

"No vaccine has indeed been developed for #Corona yet, but l’m sure that there’s only one way to deal with global crises: international interaction," Hanachi wrote on his Twitter account.

"I talked to Hamdoon Al Harthi and @imamoglu_int today, distinguished mayors of Muscat and Istanbul. We’ll be always together," he added.

The head of Iran's Health Ministry's Public Relations Office said earlier on Tuesday that a total of 84,802 have been infected with COVID-19 in Iran, from whom 5,297 have lost their lives to the virus.
