The last farewell of the father with the lifeless body of his 21-year-old daughter who died of the Corona virus, while the acquaintances were standing a little towards the Qibla and praying the dead body. Abolfazl Barzegar, the father of the late Mina, despite having Down Syndrome as a child, lovingly cared for him for 21 years and was his only child. Unfortunately, Mina contracted the corona virus and Corona kept the girl away from Baba forever.
