Iran Mall is the name of one of the world's largest commercial and recreational complexes. Now, in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, the Tehran-based Mall has not only closed its doors to promote social distancing, but has also turned into a huge medical center for corona patients.

According to Press TV, authorities at Iran Mall hope that if all entities rush for help, this change of use would be short, and the good days would soon come back.

When it comes to the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19, Iran's ranking has dropped from the second to the sixth worst affected. But as the spread is still on the rise, authorities at Iran Mall say the fight against the killer virus is far from over, and this shopping center continues to serve as a hospital until further notice.
