During the past 50 years the human beings had not been faced with any pandemy, and the medical progress achieved had made everyone hopeful for ending the pandemy, but the outspread of the disease, even in medically advanced countries with complicated and advanced medical apparatus, huge investments to fight the disease, and excellent expert people diminished that initial optimism," said President Rouhani.
