In a letter to Leader of the Islamic Revolution, His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani expressed gratitude for the permit His Eminence issued allowing withdrawal of one billion euros from National Development Fund of Iran [NDFI] to combat the lethal coronavirus in the country.

Rouhani on Monday issued the required instructions for the received financial resources from NDFI, in a letter to Head of Plan and Budget Organization [PBO] Mohammad Bagher Nobakht.

He urged Nobakht to spend the financial resources on meeting the needs of the Health Ministry and supplying medical equipment needs from domestic sources and knowledge-based companies.

Rouhani also asked that a part of the resource will be allocated to the Unemployment Insurance Fund.

As of Monday, the total number of confirmed coronavirus cases across Iran has reached 60,500, with a total death toll of 3,739.
