How are high level government officials even being exposed to this virus?
Hossein Sheikholeslam, adviser to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, has died of coronavirus, becoming the third government figure to perish in the epidemic which has infected thousands in Iran.
Sheikholeslam, whose previous political posts have included ambassador to Syria and assistant to the parliament speaker for international affairs, first rose to prominence in the country while still a student for his role in the US-Iran hostage crisis.
He died on Thursday in Tehran’s Masih Daneshvari Hospital.
The coronavirus epidemic has hit Iran hard. Some 23 lawmakers have tested positive for the illness, including the head of emergency medical services, and other high-profile deaths include a member of the council advising the Ayatollah, a former ambassador, and a newly-elected member of parliament. Schools and universities have been closed until March 20 as of Thursday, and parliament suspended its session at the end of last month “until further notice.”
Some 3,513 Iranians are said to be infected with coronavirus, while at least 108 have died.
I don’t know what to even tell you, but this virus seems like a vicious hoax.
What are the chances that the key spot hit is the Iranian government?
Seriously, what kind of coincidence is that?
It starts with US enemy China, then moves to US enemy Iran.
Russia is clearly suspicious of this pattern, as they’re taking a whole lot of precautions.
Health authorities in Russia’s capital have imposed a state of “high alert” and a series of new measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, directing anyone returning from virus-stricken locales to self-isolate.
Returnees from trips abroad – namely from China, Iran, South Korea, Germany, France, Italy and Spain – have been asked to relay details of their travel to health officials, and to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days, according to a decree published on the Moscow mayor’s website on Thursday. That means forgoing work, studies and limiting visits to public places.
“The situation with coronavirus in the city is relatively calm… but, despite the measures taken, there is information about new cases,” Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin wrote in a blog post explaining the decree.
“Therefore, in order to intensify work to prevent the spread of the disease, I decided to introduce a high-alert mode in the city for city services – outpatient and inpatient health care, municipal services, and transport.”
I don’t know what the mechanism here is.
But I do believe that this is being used as a targeted weapon against the enemies of ZOG.
Russia is right to suit up.
