Iran mobilize 300,000 soldiers to fight Coronavirus

Iran is calling on its military to help with efforts to mitigate the coronavirus as it spreads rapidly across the country.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gave the go-ahead to mobilize 300,000 soldiers and volunteers to combat the virus, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

“Whatever helps public health and prevents the spread of the disease is good and what helps to spread it is sin,” Khamenei said at a tree planting for the upcoming arbor day. It was his first time wearing gloves at the annual ceremony, according to the AP.
