The coronavirus has spread quickly around the world. Over 1,28,000 individuals are infected, the huge majority in only four countries: China and South Korea – in which new instances are falling – and Iran and Italy, in which they aren’t.
The spread has slowed so much in China the government delivered a medical team to Italy and provided surplus supplies to Iran.
The situation is very grave in Iran that on Thursday reported 75 brand new deaths in the coronavirus, bringing the death toll on 429 from the worst-hit nation in the Middle East.
“We’ve identified 1,075 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the previous 24 hours, which means there are 10,075 infected individuals in the nation.
Iran on Thursday said it had requested the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for about $ 5 billion in emergency funding to fight the coronavirus epidemic.
In reality, the local outbreak was so enormous in Iran that the nation started digging burial trenches so big they are visible from distance.
The excavation for the burial started on February 21, the Post reported, and rapidly expanded. The burial ground has been dispersed over 100 yards, the report further stated.
The movies mentioned by the Article in its reportage are from BBC Persian where the reporter is seen going to the website of their mass graves and emphasizing the new burials.
The coronavirus epidemic in Iran has infected a range of senior officers, politicians, clerics, and members of the elite Revolutionary Guards. Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency said on Thursday the Ali Akbar Velayati, a leading advisor to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, had been infected and has been currently under quarantine.
At least seven politicians and officials have expired as of February 19, when Iran declared first infections and 2 deaths in the virus.
