In shocking news, as many as 66 people have lost their lives and over 1500 people have been infected by coronavirus in Iran, Deputy Health Minister Alireza Raisi said in an announcement on state TV.

The coronavirus, which originated in China has by far, spread more than 20 countries across the world ever since it came to be known. The deadly virus has been in the news ever since it was found in Wuhan, China because it has claimed over 3,000 lives so far. 

“The definite latest numbers we have are 523 new infections and 12 new deaths so the total number of those infected is 1501 until now and the number of deaths is 66,” he said.

The deadly virus has attacked Iran leaving 66 people dead and over 1,500 infected by this. It has created fear among people in Iran.

Even as China is finding it tough to bring widespread infectious disease under control, several countries across the world are reporting cases of coronavirus. It has been learnt that 66 people have died from coronavirus.

As per reports, the deadly virus has claimed over 3,000 lives in China alone. Over 80,000 people have been infected by coronavirus in China. People are losing their loved ones to the deadly disease which originated in Wuhan, China. Unfortunately, no vaccination or cure has been discovered to help patients recover the deadly disease so far.

The World Health Organization already declared the new coronavirus a global emergency after it spread quickly from China to other countries. Thailand Scientists, on the other hand, have discovered a cure for Coronavirus that can treat the disease in 48 hours. Doctors claim they’ve discovered a cocktail of drugs that effectively treats the dangerous Coronavirus. But the death toll and the number of infections continued to climb in China since the virus was detected in Wuhan (the epicentre of the virus), China.

The situation is becoming volatile due to the deadly virus. Three people from Kerala had tested positive for the virus after which the Kerala government declared a state-wide emergency. It should be noted that all three patients in Kerala are students who returned from China’s Wuhan city. According to the officials, the students were in physical contact with one another. However, India has already evacuated its citizens from Wuhan, the epicentre of the deadly virus.
