Coronavirus arrived in Iran

"Two suspected cases of corona virus, hospitalized in Qom, have tested positive," the Head of the Health Ministry's Public Relations and Information Center said.

Iran (IMNA) - The nationality of the two people infected has not revealed yet. “Since last two days, some suspected cases of the new coronavirus were found,” Kiyanoush Jahanpour said.

He did not say how many people were suspected of having the virus, which causes the illness that the World Health Organization recently named COVID-19, referring to its origin late last year and the coronavirus that causes it.

Subsequent tests were in progress and the results of these tests will be released to the public, once they are finalised, Jahanpour said.
