A religious shrine in the Iranian city of Shiraz has been temporarily transformed into a production facility for manufacturing facemasks, amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to a source, women at the Shah Cheragh shrine, in the southern Iranian city, are manufacturing facemasks to help the country combat the virus.

The Shrine hosts the tombs of the brothers Ahmad and Muhammad, sons of Imam Musa al-Kadhim (AS) and brothers of Imam Reza (AS).

The Shah Cheragh shrine has remained closed since the enforcement of the nationwide lockdown aimed at containing the spread of the coronavirus.

The step to start a production facility provides a stark contrast with earlier stories of religious authorities and pilgrims to shrines downplaying the threat of the coronavirus.

Earlier shocking images surfaced of visitors to the Muslim holy sites licking metal grilles surrounding a tomb, in defiance of measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

The photos published by the Fars News Agency showed dozens of women in protective garments sewing the masks under the lavish-decorative dome.

    More important is to get rid of the mental mask which has stopped any sort of logical reasoning of Iranian people since 1979. Iran at the time of Shah was so much better.
