WHO team heads to Tehran

Iran on Monday reported a dozen additional deaths from the novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, a commercial city in China late last year, bring the total number of deaths to 66.

The World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday sent its first aircraft to Iran to help fight coronavirus. 

Along with basic supplies, it dispatched six medics with medical equipment and test kits on a UAE military aircraft.

"Today's flight will carry 7.5 tonnes of medical equipment and supplies, primarily the critical items needed for infection prevention and control to support health care workers in Iran," said Robert Blanchard from the WHO in Dubai.
