Iran’s passive response in battling the coronavirus at home has helped spread the virus in the Middle East, experts say. Iran, the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the Middle East, reported the first case in the country February 19 in the shrine city of Qom, nearly 140 kilometers south of the capital, Tehran. As of March 20, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported 19,644 confirmed cases with at least 1,433 deaths. Iranian officials initially downplayed the spread of the virus as the country was heading into its parliamentary election.
