Coronavirus epidemic in Iran has passed the crisis level…


Moved the updates on top so it’s easier to check in daily (clicking on each tweet, opens up a thread of 20-50+ updates). Follow along as Ali continues to help break down the tweets/information he finds, that many of us may not stumble across or understand due to language/culture.

Original Post

A thread on twitter has gained some traction, and it’s alarming.

Twitter thread regarding the spread of Coronavirus in Iran by Ali
Twitter thread regarding the spread of Coronavirus in Iran by Ali – Must expand the tweet to see all the posts. Over 50 tweets in this thread.

As we are all fully aware, like China — transparency is not Iran’s forte. We must take this with a grain of salt, but with eyes wide open as well. Ali has mentioned he’s not a reporter, but it’s apparent he has a deep connection, and personally, if his information is valid, we can be sure a lot of this won’t hit the media until they can’t ignore it.

Yesterday (Feb 29th), Canada announced three more cases of COVID-19 in the Ontario region. Two women in their 30’s and 50’s that arrived from Iran. It was further revealed the woman in her 30’s had symptoms prior to boarding the flight. She boarded two planes then public transit, before going to seek medical help the next day. She was not wearing a mask during her travels.

Health officials are asking those who travelled in the business class section of Qatar Airways flight QR 483 and QR 163 Air Canada flight AC 883 and on GO Bus #40 eastbound and sitting on the upper deck to contact them as they may have been exposed to the virus.CP24

Under this government, which lacks in direction, and authority, I would be wary with some of the information Canadian health officials are giving us. Screening at the airports was already a joke according to this article back in January, when fears were heightened.

As of now Canada has not imposed any travel bans to/from Iran. They currently have a level 3 travel advisory: “Avoid non essential travel” – but the decision is still yours – Canada travel advisory

Meanwhile, US has banned travel from Iran, including expanding their ban yesterday to include foreign nationals that have visited Iran in the last 14 days.

What has Canada been waiting for this ENTIRE time?

If Ali’s reports are on point, we are in deep trouble, and I’m not sure Iran will be as drastic as China was, which gave us time and possibly helped hinder the spread. It will be up to Canada to pull up their big boy pants and take some action – which should have been done long ago, but if there’s any time not to make the same mistake, it’s now! – Restrict flights, and amp up screening!
