Half Million Iranians Said to be Infected with Coronavirus
Iran’s clerical rulers have faced the accusation that they are fabricating statistics to hide the severity of the coronavirus disease afflicting the population. A member of the National Coronavirus Combat Taskforce for the Islamic Republic of Iran revealed this week that half a million people in the country suffer from the deadly coronavirus. Iran's Ministry of Health claims that 60,500 Iranians are currently infected. However, Hamid Souri, the task force member, told the Islamic Republic's news agency, IRNA, that many patients afflicted with the coronavirus have not been detected. Souris termed the situation "worrisome,” and said there has been a spike in the virus across the provinces of Tehran, Khorasan Razavi, West Azarbaijan, Bushehr, Khuzestan, and Kermanshah. The Jerusalem Post reported on Monday 6 April 2020 that the death rate in Iran is “four to five times higher than the regime admitted that day”. Also on Monday, the head of Iran's Health Ministry's Public Relations Office, Kianush Jahanpur said that "If the current procedure goes on, within seven to ten days we will witness the virus peaking again in Tehran." Iran is the epicenter of the Middle East coronavirus crisis. The clerical regime has refused to accept humanitarian aid from the USA government. (VFI News)
Pray that leaders in Iran making decisions that affect the lives of their nation's families, communities and the wider world will communicate with clarity and truth. Pray they will accept the aid offered by the USA and other nations to help the sick and the needy among them and not pour donated monies into terrorist support and activities.
