Iranian authorities said 77 people have died amid 2,336 cases of the new coronavirus in the Islamic Republic, APA reports.

Earlier, Iran’s supreme leader ordered the country’s armed forces to assist its health ministry in combating the spread of the virus.

 

The decision by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei came as Iran reported the highest death toll from the new virus and the Covid-19 illness it causes outside of China, the epicentre of the virus.
