The Health Official Originally Said Iran Had Everything Under Control
The coronavirus epidemic has the whole world on its feet.
Due to increased travel and contact with foreigners, the potential for epidemics to spread is magnified.
Iran’s coronavirus episode is rather interesting.
Iranian Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi, who is heading the country’s counter-coronavirus task force, has been informing ministers and journalists on the Iranian government’s efforts to combat the virus. He even proclaimed that they had the situation under control, according to Forbes.
Then irony struck.
