TEHRAN, Mar. 13 (MNA) – The Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Bagheri said some measures will be taken to reduce the daily commute of cars and peoples in cities within the next 24 hours.

He called on the nation to follow recommendations of officials in the Ministry of Health to contain the coronavirus.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has issued an edict to Iran's top general, emphasizing the need for the establishment of a “health and treatment headquarters” to prevent further spread of an ongoing coronavirus epidemic in the country.

Previously, Bagheri said that all medical facilities of the armed forces are ready to provide required services to the Iranian people to contain the novel coronavirus.
