Because iranian believe that if you die in coronavirus its a well of Allah, which is wrong belief..virus is from evil if you follow the protocol to protect your self cover your mouth by mask and avoid going and coming to they other country they become safe..but because they are not listening thats what happen.. 50 people deaths is not Allah well.

14 day quarantine is pointless. Incubation of virus pushed to 21 days and possibly longer. Screening of people at airports/check points for symptoms of fever? Symptoms wont show straight away so what you see happening where people are scanned is just a front to show that something is being done about it. There is no control of this. While someone is 'recovered' someone else is 'infected'. Prove me wrong but I think until such time that either medication or vaccines are made there will be spikes and drops in infection numbers like a yo-yo ball. Correct me if I am wrong. This is a global issue disrupting life as we knew it (where is the WHO on this?)

In order to eliminate the low end of the population, the United States treats pneumonia patients as flu. Since the spring of 2019, more than 16,000 people have died, on average more than 1,000 people a month from lung disease

Perhaps they could stop funding terrorist groups and spend more money on buying kits to detect the virus. Millions were spent on enhancing their nuclear program vs building hospitals. The irony is that the supreme leader is a billionaire having a vast holdings in multinational corporations.

My issue is that the info we are receiving is contradicting with the other? How many are really dying of this virus? It's not clear right now since the strategy is to not tell us the whole truth....

I’m praying for ALL the Citizens of different Country’s who are facing this deadly virus. I’m also praying for the antidote as well as physicians, bio doctors and scientist who can possibly relocate to places like Iran to help prevent this Coronavirus from killing more. This is for the people not the government representatives who mainly are leaders for their own selfish ambition. 🙇🏻‍♀️🙏🏽❤️🇺🇸🌏🕊

Its a respiratory infection. Stop smoking or vaping and protect your lungs and oxygen intake ability, take daily vitamins, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, go to bed early as sleep is the number one thing your immune system needs and exercise daily for oxygenated blood which boosts the immune system. This combination builds up electrical charges between your cells that can attack the viruses that are foreign to your body. Meanwhile the government is working on a vaccine and pills that do the same thing. They haven't yet so that is why the natural health I suggest is so important. Good luck.

The plagues of the Bible are being unleashed on the world for what has been done to TMH'S chosen people. We have told the world who we are so now you will see us. Only those who are Confederate against Yahawah's people will be affected. Repent for your for father's sins and Cleve to Yisrael TMH'S Cooper colored Negro people all over the world than you will be saved. But you must pay for the sins of your for father's first.

Keeping the borders open was what got the virus into Italy and other countries. Have the European countries lost their mind and intelligence? Japan has followed the WHO protocol to the letter and now she is on the brink of a pandemic. Please, those countries that have not been infected with the virus, CLOSE YOUR BORDERS NOW!!!! Do not trust and follow the guidelines of WHO. CLOSE YOUR BORDERS NOW!!!!!!!!!!
