Iran: Over 700 dead after drinking alcohol to cure coronavirus

More than 700 people have died in Iran after ingesting toxic methanol, erroneously thinking it can cure the new coronavirus.

The national coroner's authority said that alcohol poisoning killed 728 Iranians between February 20 and April 7. Last year there were only 66 deaths from alcohol poisoning, according to the report.

Alcohol poisoning has seen a 10-fold increase in Iran in the past year, according to a government report released earlier in April, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Iranian health ministry spokesman, Kianoush Jahanpour, said 5,011 people had been poisoned from methanol alcohol, adding that some 90 people have lost their eyesight or are suffering eye damage from the alcohol poisoning.

Hossein Hassanian, a health ministry adviser, said the final tally of people who lost their eyesight could be much higher.

Iran is facing the worst coronavirus outbreak in the Middle East with 5,806 deaths and more than 91,000 confirmed cases.

Reduction of methanol by alcohol dehydrogenase yields formaldehyde, which is the poison that likely caused their death. It happened in Nigeria sometimes back in ondo(not really sure). When people were dying after consuming methanol sold to them as ethanol. The villagers were saying the gods were angry. Toxicology test revealed they died of methanol poisoning. We used their lab result as case study in class.

During the time of Ebola, I remembered the way some Nigerians died due to the abuse of salt.
Whichever safety method you're adhering to, please don't go overboard.
To the dead Iranians, may your soul find peace with your maker.
To the bereaved familes, may God grant y'all the fortitude to bear these losses.
God, grant us the wisdom with which a lasting solution to this pandemic will be found.
Amen and amen.
Meanwhile, let's keep calm.
Stay safe.
