Iran denies virus coverup after claim of 50 deaths

The Iran government on Monday confirmed that 12 people — highest outside China — had died nationwide from the coronavirus, but rejected claims by a lawmaker that the toll could be as high as 50. Ahmad Farahani, a lawmaker from Qom, south of Tehran, alleged that Iran’s government was ’lying’ about the death toll and 50 have died due to the virus in Qom, alone.
