IRNA – Tehran’s Milad Tower illuminated with green lights on Sunday night to appreciate the efforts made by Iranian doctors, nurses and the medical community fighting coronavirus.

Milad Tower, also known as the Tehran Tower, is a multi-purpose tower in Tehran, Iran. It is the sixth-tallest tower and the 24th-tallest freestanding structure in the world.

It is standing at 435 meters from the base to the tip of the antenna. Earlier, President Hassan Rouhani hailed round-clock efforts of the doctors and nurses, saying that the medical community is at the forefront of battling coronavirus.

“I am thankful to them, as they are on the scene with all in their power. Day and night, they continue their work with a short break for rest,” he said.
