The old man was discharged from hospital as the second man, after the news of recovery of a 101-year-old man from the same region went on viral just a few days ago.
Also, an Iranian nurse in Delfan town, Western Iran, postponed her wedding ceremony in a bid to join the national fight against coronavirus disease.
Meanwhile, President Hassan Rouhani ordered several members of the cabinet to take further measures in campaign against Coronavirus.
In his phone conversation with the Head of Plan and Budget Organization Mohammad Bagher Nobakht, Rouhani called for acceleration of allocating $18bln facilities that had already been ratified by the government to assist coronavirus-hit jobs in the country.
However, acting chief of Iran's Red Crescent Society (IRCS) Karim Hemmati announced that the organization is planning to offer assistance to almost 2 million people who have lost their jobs due to the coronavirus epidemic.
Moreover, Iranian Vice-President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari announced that three groups are striving to produce COVID-19 vaccine while there is a nationwide mobilization against the epidemic.
Meantime, an official of Iran's Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade said that Alborz province is a main center of production of masks and alcohol to contribute to the nationwide struggle against coronavirus epidemic.
Furthermore, Iran's Ministry of Economy and Finance said that OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID) approved $0.5mln aid to Iran for purchase of equipment to battle coronavirus epidemic.
And, deputy Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade Hossein Modares Khiabani said that Iranian Production units have boosted capacities to produce over 15 million coronavirus protection face-masks while the country is seriously involved in combating the epidemic.
Spokesman of Iran's Health Ministry Kianoush Jahanpour announced on Friday that 2,715 new coronavirus cases have been identified during the past 24 hours totaling the number of the infected to 53,183.
"For the past 24 hours, according to definite diagnostic standards, 2,715 new cases infected with COVID-19 have been identified in the country which means the total number of the patients has reached 53,183", Jahanpour said, expressing happiness that so far 17,935 patients have recovered and been discharged from hospital.
He added that unfortunately 134 coronavirus patients have succumbed to the disease during the past 24 hours, increasing the death toll to 3,294.
Jahanpour also mentioned that 4,035 coronavirus patients are in critical conditions.
The coronavirus COVID-19 is affecting approximately all countries and territories around the world. The virus was first reported in the central Chinese city of Wuhan late last year. It has so far killed more than 54,000 people and infected over 1 million others globally.
The Iranian foreign ministry declared that despite Washington’s claims of cooperation to transfer drugs to Iran via the new Swiss-launched payment mechanism, the US is troubling the process amid the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
Although US claims that medicines and medical equipment are not under sanctions, they have practically blocked the transfer of Iran’s financial resources in other countries into the Swiss Humanitarian Trade Arrangement (SHTA), Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi said.
As the death toll from the virus surges, Iran intensifies its preventive safety measures. Closures of schools and universities have been extended until early April.
The government also imposed travel restrictions, specially on Iran’s North, which is among the red zones. The country has also adopted strict digital health control procedures at airports to spot possible infections.
Health Minister Saeed Namaki announced earlier this month that a new national mobilization plan would be implemented across the country to fight against the coronavirus epidemic and more effectively treat patients.
Namaki said that the plan will include all the 17,000 health centers and the 9,000 medical and clinical centers in all cities, suburban areas and villages.
He added that the plan will include home quarantine, noting that infected people will receive the necessary medicines and advice, but they are asked to stay at home.
Namaki said that people with a more serious condition will stay at the hospitals, adding that the public places will be disinfected, the entries of infected towns and cities will be controlled to diagnose and quarantine the infected cases.
He added that the necessary equipment and facilities have been provided, expressing the hope that the epidemic would be curbed.
According to the latest statistics of Health Ministry, the number of medical laboratories to test coronavirus infection has reached 90 across the country.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says Iran's response to the virus has so far been up to the mark. Still, it says the US sanctions are a big challenge, and Washington would be complicit in the rising death toll in Iran if it would not remove its sanctions.
The World Health Organization has considered priorities in combating coronavirus and Islamic Republic of Iran obeys and follows up priorities as defined by WHO.
The WHO is dispatching separate delegations to all countries.
