Iran On ‘Warlike’ Footing as Senior Leader Admits He Has Coronavirus

Iranian forces have taken a “warlike” posture across the Islamic Republic as another of Tehran’s top political figures admits he has contracted the coronavirus, according to reports in Iran’s state-controlled media.

Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has been infected with the coronavirus and is now in isolation, according to reports in Iran’s state-controlled press outlets. Velayati is one of many top Iranian officials to contract the virus since it began spreading across Iran. Several Iranian officials have already died as a result of the illness.

The situation in Iran has rapidly deteriorated over the past several weeks and prompted the country to galvanize a military response to stymie the virus’s spread.

Iranian forces affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) have now taken a “warlike” posture across the country, officials said.

“All provincial units of IRGC along with medical science universities are really in a warlike arrangement,” Major General Hossein Salami said Monday during a videoconference with IRGC leaders.

These military forces are working to disinfect areas and move infected individuals into makeshift quarantine facilities.
