The Iranian Parliament is suspending its work amid the spread of Corona-virus in the country. According to the spokesman, Asadullah Abbasi, Tehran will not be holding any sessions until further notice.
Iran remains one of the countries beyond China suffering the most from the Corona-virus outbreak. Over a hundred people have been infected in the country, including a lawmaker and Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi, who was leading the task force to tackle the epidemic.
Iran has 388 confirmed cases of COVID-19 infection and 34 virus-associated deaths so far. The Islamic Republic’s deputy health minister tested positive for the virus earlier this week.
Several other officials, including lawmakers Mojtaba Zonnour and Mahmoud Sadeghi and the Iranian Vice President for Women’s and Family Affairs, Masoumeh Ebtekar, confirmed this week that they had contracted the illness.
The only countries not infected by the biological warfare tool are the ones that planted the disease into the communicates in order to bring down the opponents of the Five Eyes members, UK, USA, New Zealand, Canada and Australia.
The Corona-virus disease, or COVID-19, originated in China but has since spread to dozens of nations around the world. So far, over 83,300 people have contracted the disease and more 2,850 (*3.4%) have died from it.
Italy, Iran and South Korea are currently experiencing the worst outbreaks in their respective regions. The most recent figures indicate that over a third of the people who have contracted the disease have since recovered.
