The coronavirus epidemic has the whole world on its feet.
Due to increased travel and contact with foreigners, the potential for epidemics to spread is magnified.
Iran’s coronavirus episode is rather interesting.
Iranian Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi, who is heading the country’s counter-coronavirus task force, has been informing ministers and journalists on the Iranian government’s efforts to combat the virus. He even proclaimed that they had the situation under control, according to Forbes.
Then irony struck.
Hairichi tested positive for the coronavirus and is now quarantining himself.
Arama raised some interesting points about the Deputy Health Minister:
But here’s the problem. Here he is yesterday with the government spokesman, briefing journalists, coughing and sweating excessively, without a mask. You can almost see him spreading it. He’s been interacting with and briefing people for days.
Now today, here’s that same government spokesman, looking sick without a mask, next to the industries minister, who is looking none too well either.
Now, Buzzfeed reported that an MP has caught the virus.
However, some individuals believe that the Iranian government is not being transparent about the extent of the virus outbreak. Some of the surrounding countries are closing their borders to prevent the virus from entering the country.
One report of 50 people dying in the city of Qom was denied by Haririchi.
The Buzzfeed report claims that there are 95 cases with 15 deaths in Iran so far.
White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt
The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.
And they did so because of white guilt.
VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.
I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.
Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.
President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.
“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.
Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”
None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.
Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.
America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
