Addressing an event held in Tehran on Sunday to unveil a coronavirus vaccine developed by the IRGC, Major General Hossein Salami said that the new vaccine, Noora, will be provided to the poor people of other countries.
Describing the IRGC personnel as the men of tough days, the commander said his forces will manage to smash all blockades with their technical and scientific activities.
He also lashed out at the self-proclaimed advocates of democracy and development for forcing sick children to die under the pressure of sanctions.
What the enemies have plotted against the Iranian nation is poverty, underdevelopment, illness and dissolution, which is why they have prevented Iran from interacting with the world and have blocked the financial transactions for the purchase of medicine and vaccine, the general noted.
“We have decided to be among the world’s top countries in every field,” General Salami stated, pointing to Iran’s advances in many areas, such as the production of unmanned wide-body aircraft that can fly as far as 7,000 kilometers and land on any spot.
The coronavirus vaccine developed by the IRGC was unveiled at the Baqiyatallah Hospital in Tehran and the process of its clinical trial got started.
Noora is a recombinant vaccine for the COVID-19.
