Iran's Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi Tests Positive for Coronavirus

TEHRAN: Iran’s deputy health minister Iraj Harirchi tested positive for Coronavirus 24 hours after appearing ill during an event.

In a video posted online, Deputy Minister Iraj Harirchi said, “Generally, I feel fine. I just felt a bit tired, I had a fever, and it will drop.”

An Iranian parliamentarian representing Tehran has also tested positive.

“My corona test is positive … I don’t have a lot of hope of continuing life in this world,” Mahmoud Sadeghi wrote on Twitter.

Iraj Harirchi coughed occasionally and appeared to be sweating during a press conference on Monday with government spokesman Ali Rabiei.

The death toll due to coronavirus in Iran has risen to 16 and at least 95 cases of the virus were confirmed.

On the other hand, the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday that Washington was concerned that Iran may have concealed “vital details” about its outbreak and urged all nations to “tell the truth about the coronavirus”.
