On Wednesday, Bernan talked of Iran's capability in improving world knowledge of coronavirus, in a video conference with managers of Tehran Municipality.

He referred to the check posts established at Iranian international airports and said, "Iranian managers are paying specific attention to curbing the virus." The WHO official added that Iran can exchange its acquired knowledge of the virus to the world, since it is getting experienced in dealing with it.
