Russia has sent three shipments of humanitarian aid to Iran, TASS reports. The Russian embassy noted that Moscow supplies Tehran with material to produce medical masks. According to diplomats, Iran is experiencing an acute shortage of them. The cargo was delivered by air; flights were carried out on May 7, 14 and 15.

Iran also needs diagnostic test systems, ventilators, and other equipment to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

At the end of April, the number of new cases of COVID-19 in Iran was decreasing, but several days later this indicator rose again. To date, there are about 120,000 cases of coronavirus infection in the country. About 7,000 people became victims of the disease.

Russkiy Mir reported that, back in March, Russian test systems designed to diagnose coronavirus were handed over to the Iranian authorities. Earlier, countries belonging to the Eurasian Economic Union and the CIS received funds for laboratory diagnosis of the new virus. Prior to this, test systems for determining the virus had been sent to Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Funds also went to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, Mongolia and North Korea.
