Iranian ‘Lick the Shrine’ Videos Boost Fears About Unprecedented Coronavirus Infection Level in Iran


Online videos are being shared in Iran of people licking and kissing a Muslim shrine to show they are not scared of the country’s growing coronavirus outbreak.

The videos, which have reportedly emerged from Iran’s coronavirus epicenter of Qom, show several devotees spreading misinformation about the virus, with some seemingly forcing their children to take part.

Trying to prevent panic, the government has not locked down Qom but has imposed broad restrictions such as limitations on who is allowed in and out of the city

Some Iranians are defying advice by the Health Ministry to avoid touching or kissing surfaces of certain shrines, a common practice for pilgrims.

There are people who say that this shrine spreads coronavirus. I’m here to lick the tomb so that I can fall ill. This way, I’ve removed the virus. You can come and visit,” one man says in a video.

One video shows a child licking a shrine while an adult says, “bravo to this young child for licking all the doors … We’re the ones who will get the virus and our children.”

In another, a man says, “in sacred temples like these, there’s no room for viruses, germs or diseases. This is a place of heaven. This is a place of cure. There’s no disease here.”

Iranian journalist and activist Masih Alinejad has been sharing the videos via Twitter, with harsh criticism of the Iranian regime.

Not only is this child abuse, but it’s also helping the virus spread [around] Iran and to other countries. Iran’s authorities are endangering lives of Iranians and the world.” she said.

What is the true scale of Iran’s coronavirus epidemic?

The Iranian government has faced criticism in its handling of coronavirus, which is one of the worst outbreaks outside China.

While Iran has acknowledged 54 deaths among 978 confirmed infections nationwide – with a vice-president and deputy health minister among those testing positive – unofficial tolls are much higher.

The London-based BBC Persian service says 210 people have been killed by the virus; a figure it says it collated from hospital sources. The report was immediately dismissed by Iran’s health ministry.

The People’s Mujahedin, an exiled organisation that Tehran considers a terrorist group, claims that the epidemic has killed “more than 300” while infecting up to 15,000 across the country.

Six epidemiologists based in Canada used a mathematical model to estimate that there have been more than 18,000 cases on Iranian soil.

The government of stifling news on the spread of the virus. Officials insist they have the situation under control but they have just obstructed journalists trying to cover the story.

Some doctors and nurses told Reuters that hospitals in Tehran, Qom and Rasht city were overloaded with infected people. We hear about hundreds of deaths,” said a doctor in Tehran, who asked not to be named.

We hear about hundreds of death and the death toll in Iran is certainly going to rise dramatically if officials don’t start to care about their country! More coronavirus news on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [SBS]

    ‘Maybe I should have been a doctor’: Trump brags about his ‘natural ability’ for science because of his ‘super genius’ MIT professor uncle and claims CDC officials ask him how he knows so much about the coronavirus
    Trump brags about his science knowledge because of his ‘super genius uncle’ who was an MIT

    President Trump on Friday baffled observers while touring the Centers for Disease Control headquarters in Atlanta, where he bragged that he had a predisposition toward science because of his ‘super genius’ uncle. ‘You know my Uncle was a great — he was at MIT,’ the president said while standing next to health officials who are working to contain the outbreak of coronavirus. ‘He taught at MIT for a record number of years. He was a great super genius, Dr. John Trump.’ John G. Trump was an accomplished electrical engineer who went on to become a professor emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The comments about his uncle were one of several made by the president that had people scratching their heads. Trump also called Jay Inslee, the governor of Washington State, a ‘snake’. He also said he’d prefer that people exposed to the virus on a cruise ship that is currently in the waters off San Francisco be left aboard so they wouldn’t be added to the count for the nation’s total number of infections.

    Stephen King says publisher’s decision to drop Woody Allen memoir makes him ‘very uneasy’

    Stephen King (left) warns that a book publisher’s decision on Friday to cancel a planned memoir by Woody Allen (right) is censorship. ‘It’s who gets muzzled next that worries me,’ King tweeted (bottom inset). The announcement Friday by Hachette Book Group followed days of criticism focused on allegations that Allen sexually abused his daughter Dylan Farrow. The decision was made after staffers at Hachette’s imprint, Little, Brown and Company, staged a walkout in protest of the planned memoir, titled Apropos of Nothing (top inset).

    ‘Everybody that wants a test can get a test.’ Donald Trump makes extraordinary commitment despite testing kit shortage – then says ‘it’s not our fault’ that cruise ship passengers off San Francisco have coronavirus
    Donald Trump makes extraordinary commitment ‘anybody’ can get coronavirus test despite kit

    President Donald Trump brushed off concerns about the limited number of coronavirus test kits during a visit to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta and announced during a chaotic press conference that ‘anybody who wants a test can get a test.’ He left officials scrambling to explain how such a commitment could happen after free-wheeling press availability where he publicly disagreed with his own government’s approach to the cruise ship, referenced impeachment, asked about TV ratings, and called a Democratic government ‘a snake.’ ‘The tests are beautiful,’ Trump added after meeting with top U.S. scientists amid the coronavirus outbreak. ‘Anybody who right now and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test,’ Trump said. Trump praised his own administration’s response amid concerns that the million test kits promised had yet to materialize. ‘We’ve done a tremendous job at keeping it down,’ he said. And Trump shared his misgivings about providing on-shore medical treatment to passengers of a Princess cruise liner off the coast of San Francisco. He raised concerns it would spike the numbers of infected Americans.

    World War 3 fears: Iran nearly triples stockpile of enriched uranium.
    IRAN has nearly tripled its supply of enriched uranium in just three months, violating its deal with world powers, a UN agency has said.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) made the statement in a confidential report, leaked to the Associated Press. The claims have raised questions about whether Iran is ignoring agreements made with other countries, and undertaking undeclared nuclear activities. As of February 19, Iran’s stockpile of low-enriched uranium stands at 1,020.9 kilograms, compared to 372.3 kilograms in its November report.
    ran signed a nuclear deal – known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)- in 2015, with the United States, the UK, Germany, France, China and Russia.
    In the agreement, it agreed to only keep a stockpile of 202.8 kilograms.
    The drastic increase in uranium now puts Iran close to the amount needed to produce a nuclear weapon.
    However, the country has continued to deny this is the course of action they want to take.
