Coronavirus outbreak in Iran: Quarantine or Martial law

Mar 21, 2020—While other countries use their armed forces to help people, the Iranian regime has imposed martial law amid the coronavirus outbreak in Iran.
The regime intends to prepare itself to suppress protests and people’s outrage against its inaction and cover-up in spreading the coronavirus and to spread terror in the society. The Iranian regime’s failure and refusal to control the virus and quarantine cities expedited the spread of the coronavirus. Yet, the regime’s president, Hassan Rouhani, blatantly said: “We have no such thing as quarantine. There won’t be any quarantine neither today nor during Nowruz (Persian new year); neither before, nor after.”
