I'm not a fan of Islam, but Canada and the USA need to send medical aid to Iran and other 3rd world nations hit by Covid 19

Also its clear the governments are lying to us. The death rate is extremely higher, but everyone who talks suddenly get the virus (via a 9mm).

Iran Cannot Handle the Coronavirus

By Graeme Wood, from The Atlantic

Published February 27, 2020

Picture the following sacred but unhygienic scene: Pilgrims from a dozen countries converge on one small city. They stay in cramped hotels, using communal toilets and eating meals together. For their main ritual, they converge on the tomb of a woman, the sister of a holy man, and as they get closer, they feel with rising intensity grief over her death and the deaths of her kin. The grief is a commandment: Each tear, according to one tradition, will be transformed in the afterlife into a pearl, and an angel will compensate them for their tears with a bucket of pearls that will be signs of their devotion when they arrive at the gate of paradise.

But for now the bodily fluids are flowing, wiped away occasionally by bare hands, and the crowd is getting denser. A metal cage surrounds the tomb itself, and when the weeping pilgrims reach it, they interlace their fingers with its bars, and many press their face against it, fogging up the shiny metal with their breath. Some linger for minutes, some for seconds. In a single day, many thousands pass through the same cramped space—breathing the same air, touching the same surfaces, trading new and exotic diseases.

The city is Qom, Iran, and two days ago, a local health official declared on Iranian television that the coronavirus was burning through the community. The situation, he said, is grim. Iran claims that, countrywide, 26 people have died from the coronavirus illness (known as COVID-19), out of 245 total infections. All acknowledge that Qom is the center of infection, but many doubt that the numbers are accurate. Another official, a member of Iran’s Parliament from Qom, said last weekend that his city had already lost 50 people to COVID-19. That figure, assuming it’s accurate, suggests that if COVID-19 is as deadly in Iran as it is elsewhere and kills 2.3 percent of its victims, another 2,000 people have the disease in Qom alone.

(The FIRST THING any third world pesthole dictatorship does IS LIE ABOUT ITS SCREWUPS - for that matter - POLITICALLY EXPEDIENT EVASIONS OF THE TRUTH are rather common even in western led LIE-beral lands as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

It is difficult to overstate what a disaster these numbers express—not just for Iran, but for everyone. Qom is a seat of Shiite learning, the spiritual omphalos of Iran, and as a result, it draws the pious from all over the Shiite world.

(So the Faithful will demonstrate their devotion - and then go home to spread the PESTILENCE they found in Qom!! And is it not ironic that the pestilence originated among NON BELIEVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I profiled a Lebanese cleric in Paraguay for The Atlantic in 2009; his previous address had been in a seminary in Qom. On the streets of Qom, you hear Persian spoken in many accents, including Tajik and Afghan. In some restaurants, servers will address you in Arabic, and posters of Muhammad al-Sadr, a revered Iraqi ayatollah, look down at you as eat your kebab. Qom feels like a Shiite Disneyland, filled with religious attractions (with junk food for sale between stations), and that comparison might be the best way for Americans to understand the gravity of this outbreak. What if we found out that thousands of people at Disney World all had a highly contagious, sometimes fatal illness—and that vacationers had been coming and going, returning to their home city, for weeks?

(Thus far Canada has less than dozen known cases of Wuhan Virus - but is it not AMAZING how many of them were previously on an air plane coming back from China or Iran?? This is NOT a coincidence!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Zeynep Tufekci has written about the advantages and disadvantages of authoritarianism in dealing with a disaster like this. China can lock down a city, quarantining tens of millions at a time, and it can marshal its top experts, allowing them to wage a campaign against the disease with the absolute authority of a caesar.

(We know that China currently has over 780 million people under lock down and if Soviet Dictators can be trusted then China PROBABLY is slowly gaining control of the virus spread unless there is under reporting of those with symptoms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
But it can’t avail itself of the benefits of public trust, including transparent and honest accounts of the disease and its toll. In Iran, it appears that the government has all the disadvantages of an unfree society, and none of the compensating advantages. Watch this incredible video, at once comic and horrifying, of a top Iranian health official, Iraj Harirchi, assuring the public that the situation is being addressed, while sweating and coughing on colleagues and his audience because he has contracted the coronavirus:

(In other news - there is reason to believe that the ENTIRE senior govt of Iran has been exposed as the result of a state meeting with a carrier of Wuhan Virus!)

Nor is he the only top official to have been infected: Today, Masoumeh Ebtekar, Iran’s vice president and a notoriously cruel member of the group of Iranians who held U.S. diplomats hostage in 1979, announced that she, too, has the disease. According to reports, she met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his cabinet just yesterday, potentially exposing the entire senior leadership of Iran to the disease.

Harirchi stated that the government refuses to impose quarantines, because they are premodern and ineffective. Mohammad Saeedi, the head of the shrine in Qom and a local representative of the country’s supreme leader, not only opposes a quarantine but begged people to visit the shrine, calling it a “place of healing.”

(Oh GREAT!! Iran expects religious fervour to PROTECT PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

At some point, incompetence and evil become indistinguishable. I feel like we have passed this point several times in the past few years, and Iran’s leadership in particular keeps passing it over and over, like a Formula 1 car doing laps. Last month’s accidental downing of a civilian airliner exposed one form of fatal incompetence, followed by an abortive effort to cover it up. Iranians are understandably primed to wonder whether this disaster is similar, a tragedy of malign incompetence that is expanding beyond the government’s ability to contain.

(How long before panic stricken people flee across borders illegally in search of safety - just like in the good old days before humans understood how plagues and pestilence were spread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The quarantine measures that Iran has rejected are imperfect, and they would stigmatize Qom unfairly. But the current situation of what appears to be virtually uncontrolled pathogen spread is accelerating the pandemic, and right now the most valuable commodity is time—time to stockpile medicine, improve diagnosis and treatment, and teach the world how to react to a plague that may kill millions. The quarantine in China seems to be buying us time. The lack of one in Iran is spending it away.

(Sadly - NO GOVT has institute a perfect quarantine - except maybe for the Russians who DID INSIST on a two week quarantine for various international travellers arriving in Russia - AND YES - the Russians singled out Chinese for TIGHT QUARANTINE and careful inspection - and that WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Quarantine is from the Italian word for 40, because during outbreaks of the Black Death, ships entering Venice had to wait 40 days before sailors and goods could come ashore. (The Black Death, curiously enough, seems to have found its first footing in none other than the Hubei province of China, also the epicenter of COVID-19. It killed roughly a third of the population of Europe.) Forty days is a long time, longer than any of the quarantines currently being imposed on individuals traveling from outbreak sites.

(ISNT IT nice we have better information now and we know two weeks is good for quarantine - And we have medical tests to verify patient status!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

But any amount of waiting can be stressful, even in a place much more competently run than Iran. Earlier this month, I visited Hong Kong. Everyone wore masks. In public, no one crowded into my personal space on buses or in narrow pedestrian alleys. Shopkeepers came outside every quarter hour or so to wipe down the doorknobs and door buzzers of their shops, in case the last customer had left a viral particle. The burden of containing the coronavirus felt collective, and heavy. Hong Kong has a strong sense of identity and group responsibility, which has up until now kept it sane. I could take just a few days of it. Only in the middle of the night, when I knew I would encounter no one up close, did I feel comfortable—and not like some kind of norm-violating monster—walking around with my face exposed to the air.

(Yes and Hong Kong has OFFENDED its Beijing Butcher masters yet again by demanding the borders BE CLOSED to prevent Wuhan Virus from being imported - and just give a moments thought to HOW IN HELL the virus could possibly be quarantined in that crowded Hong Kong Anthill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!

Iranians are under immense stress already, from economic, political, and military pressure. They do not trust their government. The daily stress of worrying, literally every few minutes, whether you will accidentally kill yourself by picking your nose or opening a door may prove, additively, too much for a society to bear. Urging visits to Qom, I fear, is the reaction of a government that has at last recognized its own limitations and has, at some level, embraced the virus. These crazy reactions greatly increase the chances that you will soon embrace it too.

(The unpleasant reality is that Canada WILL HAVE TO EVENTUALLY CLOSE ITS AIRPORTS in order to prevent a massive influx of virus carriers!! Considering that Wuhan Virus carriers can be infectious without showing symptoms - it may already be too late to close the airports in order to protect us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Iran’s coronavirus death toll now highest outside China – Health Minister gets infected

Iran now has the highest number of coronavirus deaths outside China, with 95 infections, 16 deaths, and even the country’s deputy health minister has tested positive for the deadly infection.

https://www.news-medical.net/news/20...-infected.aspx

So 17% of the population COVID is fatal for in Iran.

Let me know when the Ali Khamenei catches COVID-19 and dies.. I will host the party.

With COVID-19 in Iran reaching Canada, expert warns outbreak will only escalate

Quote:

Nearly all of Canada’s most recent COVID-19 cases have links to travel from Iran, leading some to wonder why the Middle East country has been hit so hard by the virus.
In recent weeks, Iran has emerged as a new centre for the novel coronavirus. The country on Saturday reported 54 deaths, the highest death toll outside the Chinese province of Hubei where the virus originated.

Iranian-American commentator Negar Mortazavi said that U.S. sanctions, coupled with the regime's apparent lack of transparency and competence, are all contributing factors — and will likely only worsen a dire situation.

Mortazavi believes politics plays an important role, adding it’s "very sad how a political fight between Tehran and Washington is negatively impacting" the possible pandemic, which does not recognize either politics or borders.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Friday that the Trump administration had made a formal offer of assistance to Iran via Switzerland, which serves as an intermediary between the two nations. It’s still not clear, however, what is being offered or if Iran will accept it.

Mortazavi said the U.S. administration has “eased a little bit of the sanctions on Iran’s central bank to allow for humanitarian transactions.” But she added the move is “nothing compared to previous American administrations.”...…..More

Some linger for minutes, some for seconds. In a single day, many thousands pass through the same cramped space—breathing the same air, touching the same surfaces, trading new and exotic diseases.

(IN the latest news from Qom - March 3, 2020, Iranian Faithful are now LICKING the metal cage that displays the remains of the Saint - to prove the power of GOD to protect them from disease!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The city is Qom, Iran, and two days ago, a local health official declared on Iranian television that the coronavirus was burning through the community. The situation, he said, is grim. Iran claims that, countrywide, 26 people have died from the coronavirus illness (known as COVID-19), out of 245 total infections.

Iran frees 85,000 prisoners to combat spread of coronavirus

Quote:

Iran has temporarily freed about 85,000 prisoners in an effort to combat the spread of coronavirus, a judiciary spokesman in the country has said.

Gholamhossein Esmaili added: "Some 50% of those released are security-related prisoners... also in the jails we have taken precautionary measures to confront the outbreak."
Political prisoners are among the inmates who have been released in the move.
Javaid Rehman, the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, said on 10 March he asked Tehran to temporarily free all political prisoners from its overcrowded and disease-ridden jails.
The request was aimed at helping to stem the spread of coronavirus in the Middle Eastern country.
The number of dead from the coronavirus has reached 853 in Iran, where a total of 14,991 people have been confirmed infected.

Iran has one of the worst national outbreaks outside China, where the disease originated from.
Mr Esmaili did not elaborate on when those released would have to return to jail.

Mr Rehman said earlier in March that Iranian prisoners have been infected with coronavirus.
Many Iranians have ignored calls by the health authorities to stay at home, but the country's holy Shia Muslim sites and shrines in Tehran and Qom have been closed.
Officials in the country have blamed US sanctions, which were reimposed on Tehran after Washington abandoned the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, for hampering their efforts to fight coronavirus.
Tehran has called on other countries to back its call for the lifting of US sanctions.
Iran said last week it had asked the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for $5bn (£4bn) in emergency funding to combat the outbreak.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE), a rival of Iran, has put aside differences to lend support by sending two planes carrying 32 tonnes of medical supplies, including gloves and surgical masks.
Iran's clerical rulers have rejected locking down cities despite the rising death toll and the rate of new cases.
Other countries in the Middle East have imposed strict measures such as closing their borders and suspending flights.
Kuwait's health ministry on Tuesday reported seven new cases, all among Kuwaitis who had been to Britain, taking the country's total to 130.
Bahrain reported the Arab Gulf region's first death from the disease on Monday as the number of infections in the six-nation Gulf Co-operation Council crossed 1,000.
Oman, which lies across the Gulf from Iran, said anyone entering the sultanate as of Tuesday would be quarantined.
It had earlier imposed restrictions on entry to allow only Gulf Arab citizens

Of course it's Trump's fault had to be apart of the article.

For their main ritual, they converge on the tomb of a woman, the sister of a holy man, and as they get closer, they feel with rising intensity grief over her death and the deaths of her kin. The grief is a commandment: Each tear, according to one tradition, will be transformed in the afterlife into a pearl, and an angel will compensate them for their tears with a bucket of pearls that will be signs of their devotion when they arrive at the gate of paradise.

But for now the bodily fluids are flowing, wiped away occasionally by bare hands, and the crowd is getting denser. A metal cage surrounds the tomb itself, and when the weeping pilgrims reach it, they interlace their fingers with its bars, and many press their face against it, fogging up the shiny metal with their breath. Some linger for minutes, some for seconds. In a single day, many thousands pass through the same cramped space—breathing the same air, touching the same surfaces, trading new and exotic diseases.

(IN the latest news from Qom - March 3, 2020, Iranian Faithful are now LICKING the metal cage that displays the remains of the Saint - to prove the power of GOD to protect them from disease!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The city is Qom, Iran, and two days ago, a local health official declared on Iranian television that the coronavirus was burning through the community. The situation, he said, is grim. Iran claims that, countrywide, 26 people have died from the coronavirus illness (known as COVID-19), out of 245 total infections. All acknowledge that Qom is the center of infection, but many doubt that the numbers are accurate. Another official, a member of Iran’s Parliament from Qom, said last weekend that his city had already lost 50 people to COVID-19. That figure, assuming it’s accurate, suggests that if COVID-19 is as deadly in Iran as it is elsewhere and kills 2.3 percent of its victims, another 2,000 people have the disease in Qom alone.

(The FIRST THING any third world pesthole dictatorship does IS LIE ABOUT ITS SCREWUPS - for that matter - POLITICALLY EXPEDIENT EVASIONS OF THE TRUTH are rather common even in western led LIE-beral lands as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

It is difficult to overstate what a disaster these numbers express—not just for Iran, but for everyone. Qom is a seat of Shiite learning, the spiritual omphalos of Iran, and as a result, it draws the pious from all over the Shiite world.

(So the Faithful will demonstrate their devotion - and then go home to spread the PESTILENCE they found in Qom!! And is it not ironic that the pestilence originated among NON BELIEVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I profiled a Lebanese cleric in Paraguay for The Atlantic in 2009; his previous address had been in a seminary in Qom. On the streets of Qom, you hear Persian spoken in many accents, including Tajik and Afghan. In some restaurants, servers will address you in Arabic, and posters of Muhammad al-Sadr, a revered Iraqi ayatollah, look down at you as eat your kebab. Qom feels like a Shiite Disneyland, filled with religious attractions (with junk food for sale between stations), and that comparison might be the best way for Americans to understand the gravity of this outbreak. What if we found out that thousands of people at Disney World all had a highly contagious, sometimes fatal illness—and that vacationers had been coming and going, returning to their home city, for weeks?

(Thus far Canada has less than dozen known cases of Wuhan Virus - but is it not AMAZING how many of them were previously on an air plane coming back from China or Iran?? This is NOT a coincidence!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Zeynep Tufekci has written about the advantages and disadvantages of authoritarianism in dealing with a disaster like this. China can lock down a city, quarantining tens of millions at a time, and it can marshal its top experts, allowing them to wage a campaign against the disease with the absolute authority of a caesar.

(We know that China currently has over 780 million people under lock down and if Soviet Dictators can be trusted then China PROBABLY is slowly gaining control of the virus spread unless there is under reporting of those with symptoms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
But it can’t avail itself of the benefits of public trust, including transparent and honest accounts of the disease and its toll. In Iran, it appears that the government has all the disadvantages of an unfree society, and none of the compensating advantages. Watch this incredible video, at once comic and horrifying, of a top Iranian health official, Iraj Harirchi, assuring the public that the situation is being addressed, while sweating and coughing on colleagues and his audience because he has contracted the coronavirus:

(In other news - there is reason to believe that the ENTIRE senior govt of Iran has been exposed as the result of a state meeting with a carrier of Wuhan Virus!)

Nor is he the only top official to have been infected: Today, Masoumeh Ebtekar, Iran’s vice president and a notoriously cruel member of the group of Iranians who held U.S. diplomats hostage in 1979, announced that she, too, has the disease. According to reports, she met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his cabinet just yesterday, potentially exposing the entire senior leadership of Iran to the disease.

Harirchi stated that the government refuses to impose quarantines, because they are premodern and ineffective. Mohammad Saeedi, the head of the shrine in Qom and a local representative of the country’s supreme leader, not only opposes a quarantine but begged people to visit the shrine, calling it a “place of healing.”

(Oh GREAT!! Iran expects religious fervour to PROTECT PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

At some point, incompetence and evil become indistinguishable. I feel like we have passed this point several times in the past few years, and Iran’s leadership in particular keeps passing it over and over, like a Formula 1 car doing laps. Last month’s accidental downing of a civilian airliner exposed one form of fatal incompetence, followed by an abortive effort to cover it up. Iranians are understandably primed to wonder whether this disaster is similar, a tragedy of malign incompetence that is expanding beyond the government’s ability to contain.

(How long before panic stricken people flee across borders illegally in search of safety - just like in the good old days before humans understood how plagues and pestilence were spread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The quarantine measures that Iran has rejected are imperfect, and they would stigmatize Qom unfairly. But the current situation of what appears to be virtually uncontrolled pathogen spread is accelerating the pandemic, and right now the most valuable commodity is time—time to stockpile medicine, improve diagnosis and treatment, and teach the world how to react to a plague that may kill millions. The quarantine in China seems to be buying us time. The lack of one in Iran is spending it away.

(Sadly - NO GOVT has institute a perfect quarantine - except maybe for the Russians who DID INSIST on a two week quarantine for various international travellers arriving in Russia - AND YES - the Russians singled out Chinese for TIGHT QUARANTINE and careful inspection - and that WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Quarantine is from the Italian word for 40, because during outbreaks of the Black Death, ships entering Venice had to wait 40 days before sailors and goods could come ashore. (The Black Death, curiously enough, seems to have found its first footing in none other than the Hubei province of China, also the epicenter of COVID-19. It killed roughly a third of the population of Europe.) Forty days is a long time, longer than any of the quarantines currently being imposed on individuals traveling from outbreak sites.

(ISNT IT nice we have better information now and we know two weeks is good for quarantine - And we have medical tests to verify patient status!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

But any amount of waiting can be stressful, even in a place much more competently run than Iran. Earlier this month, I visited Hong Kong. Everyone wore masks. In public, no one crowded into my personal space on buses or in narrow pedestrian alleys. Shopkeepers came outside every quarter hour or so to wipe down the doorknobs and door buzzers of their shops, in case the last customer had left a viral particle. The burden of containing the coronavirus felt collective, and heavy. Hong Kong has a strong sense of identity and group responsibility, which has up until now kept it sane. I could take just a few days of it. Only in the middle of the night, when I knew I would encounter no one up close, did I feel comfortable—and not like some kind of norm-violating monster—walking around with my face exposed to the air.
ll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



(The unpleasant reality is that Canada WILL HAVE TO EVENTUALLY CLOSE ITS AIRPORTS in order to prevent a massive influx of virus carriers!! Considering that Wuhan Virus carriers can be infectious without showing symptoms - it may already be too late to close the airports in order to protect us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

You better do something about that sticky exclamation Key!
