TEHRAN, Iran said on Monday that the novel
coronavirus has killed 129 more people, a new record high for a single day in
one of the world’s worst-hit countries.
“Our plea is that everyone take this virus seriously and in no way attempt
to travel to any province,” health ministry spokesman Kianoush Jahanpour said
in a televised news conference.
The latest deaths bring the overall toll to 853 fatalities since February
19, when the government announced Iran’s first two deaths from the disease.
