Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Hossein Salami said that the IRGC will provide coronavirus patients and medical staff with all its possibilities and capacities to fight against the disease.
“Upon the order issued by the Supreme Leader (Ayatollah Khamenei), we are committed to bringing to the field all IRGC’s treatment capacities and possibilities, including fixed and mobile hospitals as well as possibilities to produce and distribute masks and hygiene packages, cooperate in screening and assist the devoted medical staff by the medical society’s Basij (volunteers),” General Salami said, addressing the IRGC and Basij commanders in a video conference on Tuesday.
He added that the decision was made after Ayatollah Khamenei entrusted the Armed Forces, including the IRGC, with a new mission to cooperate with the medical staff with all their power in the area of coronavirus prevention and treatment.
General Salami said that besides these measures, the IRGC and Basij forces continue gathering and distributing public aid packages among the poor people.
