We declared the Army to stay alert due to the coronavirus: Iranian regime’s General
After three months of denial and cover-up, Iranian regime officials are now acknowledging in the news that they knew about COVID-19 cases in Iran since January and the regime was put on alert. But the question is why did they not declare anything to the people and even held the sham parliamentary election. Habibollah Sayyari, the coordinating deputy of the army chief of staff, said, “The army predicted the spread of the disease on January 19. We learned about the spread of the disease in China by monitoring the websites of WHO, and we declared it to our forces to stay alert. And after a base was formed in the General Staff of the Armed Forces, we formed a base in the army and a base was formed in all branches of the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and we took our actions.”
