Iran has refused aid from the United States when the country is one of the most affected by the coronavirus pandemic in the world. And for good reason! The country is putting back on the table the theory that taxes the country of Donald Trump to be at the base of a plot that would have given birth to the coronavirus.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has refused US aid to fight the new coronavirus, citing a conspiracy theory that the virus was created from the Americans.
“It is possible that your (free) medicine is a means of further spreading the virus,” Ali Khamenei said in a speech broadcast nationwide on Sunday. For the staunch opponent of the United States, the American proposal to assist his longtime enemy to fight against the coronavirus pandemic is ” strange “.
He also invoked the conspiracy theory to refuse American aid proposed by Donald Trump, while the Islamic Republic is one of the countries most affected in the world by the epidemic.
“It is suspected that the United States is responsible for the virus, and drugs are their means of spreading it even more,” he said.
Unexpectedly, Iran, which is one of the three countries most affected by the new coronavirus after Italy and China, has refused to impose containment or quarantine measures.
On March 4, Hassan Rohani , the Iranian president declared to a council of ministers that: ” Our people know very well that you (American officials) are lying” and “that you are not telling the truth “.
Iran currently has nearly 20,000 confined people, with 21,638 infected and 1,685 deaths.
