TEHRAN, Feb. 29 (MNA) – Due to the outbreak of coronavirus in Iran, the government spokesperson Ali Rabiei will be holding his next presser through video conference.

The press conference is scheduled to be held on Monday.

As of Friday, the death toll from the coronavirus outbreak, officially known as COVID-19, in Iran has risen to 34 with 338 confirmed cases.

Globally, the deadly virus has infected more than 85,000 people across the world, claiming 2,924 lives.
