The World Health Organization’s director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said that the WHO has its “own mechanism” for checking facts and has not seen problems with Iran’s reported figures about coronavirus victims, APA reports quoting CNBC.

He reiterated that there is no evidence of Iranian cover-up in virus crisis.

Asked whether he is not worried about discrepancy in Iran's official statistics and what certain media declare, he added that WHO is a technical entity and it should examine realities and it never repeats what the journalists say.

According to the latest statistics released by the relevant institutes, some 1501 have been infected with the disease with 66 deaths so far.
