    Nothing says ‘we’ve got this under control’ like confirming that a handful of your government’s most senior officials have caught the virus at the root of a deadly pandemic sweeping the globe.

    Update (0940ET)FARS news agency reports that for former Iranian Ambassador to The Vatican has died from Covid-19.

    After confirming on Thursday that its ‘official’ death toll from the outbreak had reached 22 with 141 cases confirmed (lawmakers have claimed that the death toll as of Monday was up to 50 in Qom alone), Iranian state media reported that the country’s vice president for women and family affairs, Masoumeh Ebtekar has tested positive for the virus.

    She is the third senior official to be infected, alongside the Deputy Health Minister and Cleric Hadi Khosroshahi, who succumbed to pneumonia due to his advanced age.

    In a recent tweet from Ebtekar’s twitter account (because seemingly every senior Iranian official including the Ayatollah is on twitter), Ebtekar, an immunologist by training, criticized hysteria and panic being propagated by news reports.

    Iran canceled Friday prayers in Tehran on Friday as the virus spread further in the capital city. With Iran’s economy badly damaged by sanctions that have also contributed to shortages of essential supplies including medicine and medical products, it is uniquely vulnerable to the virus’s devastation.

    And the more the regime scrambles to try and contain it, the further it spreads, as Iran’s neighbors close their borders to its citizens and turn away from the Middle East’s worst virus ‘”hot spot”.

    And as more government officials fall ill, we can’t help but wonder how much longer until the Ayatollah gets sick?

      1. The Pope is next.

      2. Are the Iranian’s in the streets claiming it is the wrath of God? Like every time something bad happens in the US.

      3. Meanwhile in US trump is failing in the response to Coronavirus.
        – not testing ALL international travelers coming in.
        Can’t know who is infected if you don’t test !!!

        – not federalizing factories and turning them to make things like masks, hand sanitizer or medicine.
        Already many places are sold out and Amazon is either sold out or charging 100’s for one box of masks.

        – trump fired a lot of CDC scientists and hasn’t hired a single one back yet.
        Just think. The scientists that could be working on prevention….fired !!!

        – trump cut budget of CDC and NIH

        trump could be taking charge of this but instead he’s playing politics. No National Emergency declaration. Yet he declared one over a worthless wall.

        Remember all this when you vote!
        trump is more concerned with how the virus makes him look than with protecting YOU or your loved ones!

        • Trump just following Clinton’s, DON’T ASK DON’T TELL moto. Thus, don’t test, then we can not tell. This is a demoncrap tactic.
