Rouhani: Iran ready for possible COVID-19 escalation

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday that the country is prepared to handle "a possible escalation" in coronavirus cases.

Having reported 2,378 deaths from COVID-19, Iran is one of the hardest-hit countries amid the global pandemic.

The country has repeatedly called for the lifting of United States sanctions since the outbreak of the coronavirus as officials say the punitive measures have made it unable to provide medical equipment and emergency supplies during the crisis.
