According to the Treasury, Iran’s government has been spending its money on terror and illegal nuclear activities instead of battling the pandemic.
Some reports have claimed the illness is taking one life every 10 minutes in Iran. The State Department has said the ayatollah regime is directly responsible for these deaths.
“Senior Iranians lied about the Wuhan virus outbreak for weeks. The Iranian leadership is trying to avoid responsibility for their grossly incompetent and deadly governments. Sadly, the Iranian people have been suffering these kinds of lies for 41 years.” – Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State . . .
Earlier in the day, Iranian officials reported that nearly 150 people had been killed by the virus within the last 24 hours. This brought the nation’s death toll to roughly 1,300.
Iran has already released 85,000 prisoners on temporary leave in an apparent attempt to fight the virus. Reports confirmed about nine out of 10 of the 18,000 coronavirus cases in the Middle East have come from Iran.
