THIS ISN’t HELPING: Devout Muslims Lick Shia Shrine in Iran to “Prove” Their Faith Can Beat the Coronavirus (VIDEOS)

 

According to the Coronavirus website there have been 1,501 cases of coronavirus in Iran and 66 deaths.

These numbers are suspect as the regime is not open with its data.

** The Gateway Pundit posted an extensive report from Iran on the coronavirus on Sunday night.

What is clear is that devout Muslims are not making the situation better by licking the Shia shrines.

There are currently several videos making the rounds on social media of Muslims licking shrines to prove their faith is greater than the coronavirus.

Yuck.

Germany facing coronavirus ‘epidemic,’ govt can no longer track infection chains – health minister

German Health Minister Jens Spahn has said that his country is facing a “coronavirus epidemic.” Since breaking out in northern Italy, the deadly COVID-19 virus has spread to more than a dozen European countries.

“We are at the beginning of a coronavirus epidemic in Germany,” the minister told reporters in Berlin on Wednesday. Spahn added that infection chains can no longer be tracked in Germany, and called on hospitals and employers to review their pandemic planning.

A new instance of the deadly infection confirmed in the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen on Tuesday brought to 18 the number of cases recorded in Germany.

Spahn claimed earlier that “detection and containment” efforts in Europe were working to hold back the spread of the virus, but an explosion of cases in northern Italy and at least 13 other European countries have forced him to reevaluate the situation. At his last press conference on Tuesday, Spahn admitted “it could get worse before it gets better.”

Tracking the ‘infection chains’ – noting the previous travel and social encounters of the infected – is vital to understanding the spread of the illness. Thus far, the majority of patients in Germany were found to have recently traveled from Italy or China, or had contact with travelers.

“The infection chains are partially no longer trackable, and that is a new thing,” Spahn said on Tuesday. “Large numbers of people have had contact with the patients, and that is a big change to the 16 patients we had until now where the chain could be traced back to the origin in China.”

Despite growing panic across the continent, EU health ministers agreed on Tuesday to keep international borders open for the time being. Closing borders would be a disproportionate and ineffective measure at this time,” Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza told reporters after a meeting in Rome.

Originating in Wuhan, China, in November, the novel coronavirus has since spread to around 40 countries worldwide. Over 80,000 people have become infected, and more than 2,700 have died, the majority of them in China.

REPORT: BORDER PATROL AGENTS PROVIDED RESPIRATORS TO DEAL WITH CHINESE IMMIGRANTS CROSSING FROM MEXICO

Report: Border Patrol Agents Provided Respirators to Deal with Chinese Immigrants Crossing from Mexico

Report claims CBP has encountered 91 immigrants from China since start of 2020

  – FEBRUARY 25, 2020

US Customs and Border Protection agents in South Texas are reportedly being given respirator face masks to deal with Chinese immigrants crossing illegally into the US through Mexico.

The agents, stationed in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley sector, on Tuesday said they’ve encountered 91 immigrants from China since start of 2020, according to Center for Immigration Studies fellow and counter-terrorism expert Todd Bensman.

Fortunately, none of the Chinese immigrants have tested positive for the Coronavirus currently wreaking havoc in China and other parts of the world.

From Bensman:

Border Patrol source: 91 Chinese migrants apprehended at Texas Rio Grande sector since Jan. 1. They are being isolated and screened for virus. Agents given respirators to deal. No virus detected as of today. Lots of Chinese still coming over there and elsewhere.

The update from the southern border comes as US health officials on Tuesday warned the virus’ spread to the United States appears inevitable as cases continue to pop up in Asia and the Middle East.

“Ultimately, we expect we will see community spread in the United States,” a top scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday. “It’s not a question of if this will happen but when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illnesses.”

WATCH: Fight breaks out in Italian supermarket as coronavirus fears reach fever pitch

<div style=”position: relative;padding-bottom: 56.25%; padding-top: 25px; height: 0;”>https://www.rt.com/news/481617-fight-italian-supermarket-coronavirus/video/5e550e642030272d4a7bcc1d</div>

Fears are running high in Italy’s Lombardy region after authorities confirmed the seventh coronavirus death on Monday. The rush to stock up on essential goods has led to tensions spilling over into violence in supermarkets.

A 62-year-old man on dialysis died on Monday evening, while three other men, all in their 80s, also died from the infection at the start of the week. Meanwhile, supermarket shelves have been stripped bare due to panic-buying amid rising tensions and visible public anxiety, as evidenced by a brawl in the aisles.

At least 11 towns, 10 in Lombardy and one in Veneto, are on lockdown, affecting some 50,000 people who will be quarantined for 15 days. Video taken in towns in northern Italy paints a ghostly picture as streets are mostly deserted of signs of life amid festival cancellations and an end to public social events for the foreseeable future.

Some 229 cases of coronavirus infection had been confirmed in Italy, the third-highest number in the world, behind China and South Korea.

On Tuesday, Italian authorities will host a meeting of health ministers from Austria, Croatia, France, Germany, Slovenia and Switzerland in Rome to discuss the outbreak and the next steps to take.
