Coronavirus: Iran health authorities fear increase in cases

A rare look inside an Iranian hospital amid fears of a second wave of cases due to people ignoring warnings to stay at home.

Iran has reported that 158 people have died of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours.

There are nearly 56,000 confirmed cases in the country.

Despite warnings of a resurgence, Iran is considering a partial easing of social distancing restrictions to reduce the economic strain of the coronavirus outbreak.
