Deputy health minister of Iran tests positive for Coronavirus

IRAN: Iran’s deputy health minister has tested positive for the new coronavirus amid a major outbreak in the country which has seen 15 people die as a result.

Iraj Harirchi coughed occasionally and appeared to be sweating during a news conference in Tehran on Monday with government spokesman Ali Rabiei.

The country is one of three hot-spots outside China causing concern that the virus could be becoming a pandemic.

Iran has reported 95 cases, but the actual number is thought to be higher.

The director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO) has said the sudden increase in cases in the country is “deeply concerning”.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday that Washington was concerned that Iran may have concealed “vital details” about its outbreak and urged all nations to “tell the truth about the coronavirus”.

More people have died in Iran from the virus than anywhere else outside China. The two countries have strong trading links.

The other countries currently in the spotlight are South Korea and Italy, where cases have surged in recent days.

In a video broadcast on state television, the deputy minister put on a brave face as he admitted he was infected.

“I’ve isolated myself in a place since. A few minutes ago, I was told that my final test was final, and now I am starting the medication.”

An Iranian parliamentarian representing Tehran has also tested positive.

“My corona test is positive … I don’t have a lot of hope of continuing life in this world,” Mahmoud Sadeghi wrote on Twitter.

In the same message, he called on the head of Iran’s judiciary to release political prisoners to prevent them from getting infected and to allow them to spend the duration of the outbreak with their families.
