One of the world’s largest shopping malls, the 1.4 million square metre (4.9 million square foot) Iran Mall in Tehran, has been transformed into a makeshift hospital to help the country fight with the coronavirus outbreak.

Footage filmed on Saturday in Iran’s capital shows Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi touring the 3,000 bed facility.

“There are 3,000 hospital beds which were fully equipped and as you can see behind me there are appropriate ventilator and screening devices fulfilled by this bank, charity foundation and private sector,” said Harirchi, who was diagnosed with coronavirus in February but subsequently recovered.

The luxurious mall is normally home to 700 shops, a 20,000 square metre (65,616 square foot) supermarket, 12 IMAX cinemas and a 5-star luxury hotel, among a range of other activities.

The owners of the privately owned shopping centre decided that, with the facility closed due to outbreak, they should step in and offer the space to the government to help during the crisis.

Iran has been one of the worst-hit countries by the COVID-19 outbreak. As of Saturday, there have been over 55,000 confirmed cases in Iran, resulting in 3,452 deaths.

As usual lies and deceit, i had no idea hospital is a place with a bed and a chair beside it; this is more like a refuge camp
