Coronavirus Is About to Get Bad FAST As It Enters New Country
It looks like things are about to take a turn for the worse in regards to the coronavirus as a new country has reported having two cases of the infection.
Iran’s news agency ISNA says that there have now been two known cases confirmed in the country.
According to Fox News,
Authorities in Iran this week announced the country’s first two cases of the novel coronavirus — COVID-19 — which has infected more than 75,000 people globally and killed some 2,000 others.
The Iranian news agency ISNA reported the first two confirmed cases on Wednesday, The Associated Press reported. The cases were confirmed in the country’s central province of Qom. The nationality of the two people infected is not clear, and no other details were provided.
Other suspected cases of the virus in the country are reportedly being investigated.
“Since [the] last two days, some suspected cases of the new coronavirus were found,” said the country’s health ministry, Kiyanoush Jahanpour, according to the Associated Press.
This is really bad news and it’s very likely that we’ll see the virus spread rapidly through the country and this is largely in part because the country is not as developed as somewhere like the United States.
Now in some ways, Iran is more developed than China and in other ways, it’s not.
There have been videos showing the poor conditions of food markets in China where honestly it’s a surprise that there aren’t more people dead given the poor sanitation.
There’s really no telling what would happen if the virus does indeed spread widely throughout Iran given how tyrannical and no-nonsensical that they are. They may just shoot everyone who gets the virus or is suspected to have been exposed to it.
Other countries in the Middle East have already seen cases of the virus and all of but two of them were Chinese nationals.
