A Pakistani media quoted Iran’s semi-official news agency as saying that the Iranian government’s deputy health minister tested positive for the deadly corona virus. The Spokesperson of the Health Ministry of Iran has confirmed while saying that the deputy health minister has been placed under quarantine.
The Corona virus, which originated in Wuhan, China, killed three more people in Iran. According to a report published by the news agency AFP, the official number of casualties in Iran has risen to 15.
The Iranian government, led by Rouhani, has vowed to be transparent after being accused of hiding the spread of the Corona virus in the country. President Rouhani called for calm on Tuesday.
It is worth mentioning that despite being the center of the Corona virus outbreak in Iran, Qom City is not yet imprisoned. Schools, universities and cultural sites have been closed.
