Mohabat TV Director: Millions of Iranians May Perish as Result of Coronavirus, People Not Obeying the Quarantine

A stark warning from Iran where authorities fear millions could die from the COVID-19 pandemic.

An Iranian journalist who's also a medical doctor issued the dire warning on state television this week, urging the public to stay home and obey health guidelines. 

The Islamic Republic has been scrambling to contain the virus which has so far infected more than 17,000 people and killed over 1,100.

147 people died in just the last 24 hours.

On Tuesday, Iran's supreme leader issued a religious ruling prohibiting unnecessary travel in the country.

Dr. Mike Ansari, director of Mohabat TV, one of the largest Christian satellite channels beaming the gospel into the Islamic country, appeared on the Wednesday afternoon edition of CBN’s Newswatch to give more information on the health care situation in Iran.

Newswatch is seen weekdays on the CBN News Channel
