Coronavirus: Masoumeh Ebtekar Diagnosed With Disease As Outbreak Spreads by AnonPoet: 4:55pm On Feb 27, 2020
Iran’s vice-president has been diagnosed with coronavirus, state media have reported, as the country struggles to stop the spread of the disease.

Masoumeh Ebtekar is among 254 people infected with the virus in the Middle Eastern nation, where 26 people have been killed.

The vice-president for women and family affairs is better known internationally as the English-language spokeswoman for the hostage-takers who seized the US embassy in Tehran in 1979, sparking a 444-day diplomatic crisis.

Iran’s deputy health minister tested positive for the virus earlier this week, hours after appearing visibly unwell at a press conference during which he denied the government was suppressing the scale of the outbreak.


Coronavirus cases in Iran spiked by 106 over the last 24 hours, the country’s health ministry announced on Thursday. The country’s death toll from the outbreak is higher than any country except China, where the epidemic began.

The outbreak has prompted Iranian authorities to cancel Friday prayers in Tehran. Health ministry spokesman Kianush Jahanpur said there were also plans to impose restrictions at some holy Muslim sites but the plan “needs the approval of the president before being carried out”.

Mr Jahanpur, speaking to state TV, urged Iranians to avoid “unnecessary trips inside the country”.

State news agency IRNA said Chinese citizens have been banned from entering the country. Similar restrictions have been implemented by dozens of other nations including the US, Russia, South Korea and Australia in a bid to stem the spread of coronavirus.

Michael Ryan, executive director of the World Health Organisation’s emergencies programme, said Iran’s 10 per cent mortality rate – five times higher than China – was probably due to milder cases of the disease not being picked up.

This virus so far has proven invincible. It is a common health protocol to avoid crowded places during any outbreak of a health risk. This is intended to lower the rate of infection from person to person. It comes as no surprise that the virus is gaining ground with such speed in the Islamic country. The mode of worship admits to gathering of crowds hence the ease of infection. Same applies to every other country with a religion that mandates gatherings of worshipers. Anyways, the benefits of having your business registered are quite many. For CAC Company or Business Name registration, Foundation, Schools, Church, NGO, Trademark, TIN, SCUML, NAFDAC number etc, talk to us at www. Lawlab. Com. Ng . I pray she gets well though.

Call me Silly but I can tell you that there’s something else at play here with all of this Covid-19 endemic.

Look at it, America had issues with China, trade wars, tariff wars bla bla and guess what? Corona struck!!

Iran had issues with America and now people are dying.. not just anyhow people but the top men!!!

No American has died as a result of being infected .. Lol...
