22nd March, 2020


An Iranian opposition channel said that the brigade of the Revolutionary Guards, Hussein Asad Ilahi, who is responsible for recruiting and sending Iranian and Afghan fighters to Syria, died as a result of infection of the new Corona virus.

The "Der TV" channel added that Major General Assad Al-Lahi was one of the close personalities of the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in an American air strike on a plane near Baghdad International Airport on the third of last January.

She explained that Major General Hussein Asad Ilahi, the former commander of the 27th Brigade of the Revolutionary Guards that maintains security in the capital, Tehran, died as a result of infection of the new Corona virus.

Since the detection of the new Corona virus in Iran on February 19, this virus has infected a number of senior officials, members of parliament and political and religious figures, while a number of them have died, including Adviser to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hussein Sheikh Al-Islam.

Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of guys . Ba bye Kohemenni .

In related news, Bill Whittle is reporting that an Israeli pharmaceutical manufacturing giant "Teva" is donating millions of hydrochloroquinline sulfate pills to the United States, to help our doctors fight Covid 19. They are doing this FOR FREE....

 

That drug is usually used to fight malaria, but it's quite effective at combatting Covid 19.

Facts and information .. Pompeo refutes Khamenei's lies about the Corona virus


March 23, 2020
 

مواطنون إيرانيون يرتدون أقنعة حيث تعاني بلادهم من انتشار كبير لفيروس كورونا


Iranian citizens wearing masks, as their country suffers from a large spread of the Corona virus

 

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed in a statement Monday that the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's concoctions regarding the Wuhan Corona virus are dangerous and put the Iranians and people around the world at great risk. Pompeo presented in the statement some facts related to this matter:

That last February, the Iranian airline Mahan, which he described as a leader in global terrorist aviation, made at least 55 flights between Tehran and China, carrying the virus infection to the Iranian people

He pointed out that the first cases of Corona in at least five countries arrived directly from Iran and put the lives of millions of people at risk

Pompeo said in his statement that the Iranian regime had ignored repeated warnings from its health officials and ignored the first death from Corona for at least nine days

He said that the regime continues to lie to the Iranian people and the world about the number of injuries and deaths, which are, unfortunately, much higher than the regime admits, in the words of Pompeo

Pompeo added that while Iranian officials are requesting more funding, it is important to point out that, since 2012, Iran has spent more than $ 16 billion on terrorism abroad and used the lifting of sanctions in the nuclear deal to fill the coffers of its proxies

He revealed that Iranian regime officials stole more than one billion euros that were allocated to medical supplies and continued to store masks, gloves and other medical equipment most in need to sell them on the black market

Pompeo stressed that the US sanctions do not target Iran's imports of food, medicine, medical equipment and other humanitarian goods. And that the Iranian documents show that Iranian health companies are able to import test or examination groups without obstacles from the US sanctions since last January.

Pompeo concluded that the United States has offered more than $ 100 million in medical aid to foreign countries, including the Iranian people, and that American scientists are working tirelessly to develop a vaccine.

But Khamenei rejected this offer because he is working tirelessly to cook conspiracy theories and present the faith in the interest of the Iranian people

It should be noted that Iran is among the countries hardest hit by Covid-19, along with Italy, Spain, China and the United States, where the number of injuries exceeded 21638 cases, while the deaths exceeded 1685.

03/23/2020 12:34:44
 
 
The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, arrived today, Monday, in an unannounced visit, to help save a historic agreement that Washington signed with the Taliban at the end of February.
 
Political differences in Afghanistan and the ongoing violence hinder the implementation of the agreement between Washington and the Taliban, which was reached last month.

The plane carrying Pompeo landed in Kabul to meet Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and his political opponent, Abdullah Abdullah, who also says he is the country's president and rejects the results of the recent presidential elections in which his opponent, Ghani, was officially declared the winner again.

This was confirmed by a spokesman for the American forces in Afghanistan, Sony Leadgate, earlier that the United States began withdrawing its forces from this country, based on the agreement reached by Washington with the "Taliban" movement.

Will Al-Zarfi implement his plan to fight corruption and chase his adult heads that he advocates, or will the words of Parliament be erased by the positions?

 
Policy  ,   03/23/2020 22:37

Baghdad - Iraq today:

 

Since he was a deputy in the Iraqi parliament, the Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zrafi reveals in most of his TV and press meetings a number of measures that should be taken urgently to stop the horrific corruption rampant in the existing government, and he was critical of poor performance and control of the joints The state, offering a set of perceptions that it holds, and perhaps this encouraged many to say that the man has a plan to form a true anti-corruption council and not like Abd Al Mahdi’s meager anti-corruption council - which is filled with corruption from his head to his feet - where this true council can be launched , which he personified when he was a deputy, monitoring the performance of the executive authority.

Observers of the government affairs stated to (Iraq Today) that, "In front of the prime minister who is assigned multiple tasks, not the least of which is to stop the huge financial waste in giant projects, in the ministries of electricity and oil, and open the file of the Iraqi oil marketing company, and its transfer file, as well as the file of important ministries such as trade and transport And others. "

And they indicated that "among the urgent files also is the file of border crossings, which needs to be dealt with quickly to stop the looting, theft and bribery that is taking place with the knowledge of everyone, just as the file of buying petroleum products that consumes billions of dollars in the budget must be a priority in the anti-corruption program."

And they continued, "There are many major corruption files awaiting him, which he must investigate, in addition to heading to achieve clear and transparent administrative and accounting systems to stop embezzlement, theft and manipulation that are taking place in some financial institutions, and raising non-oil revenues is an essential task that a man can investigate." Progress, particularly in the files of exploitation of state real estate, as well as files of state resources leased, or placed in the case of leasing from the private sector. "

They added that "real tax activation must be taken care of by building an honest electronic system that allows the ordinary citizen to ensure the integrity of tax procedures, as well as monitoring the state's financial income and how it is spent, and a single ministry for administrative reform in the country must be formed, whose task is to recalibrate the workforce in the public sector, Also, eliminating the phenomena of duplication, job evasion and unoccupied staff, and also finding a clear national number for every employee in the country to show the real numbers of public sector employees.

They also added, the pension system must be reformed, and the violations and problems it faces must be reformed. Also, social welfare systems, the ration card and fuel subsidies, and others that will provide billions of dollars annually to the state’s treasury are now repaired due to the failure and corruption that has swayed the state during the past two years.

Will Al-Zarfi do whatever he calls for when he was a deputy, or is the parliament’s words erased by positions - similar to the popular proverb that the words of the night erase during the day?

Above all, it must be asked first:

Will you pass the Zorfi booth amid so many different protests around it?

I am not an American option, and I will hold the killers of the protesters accountable. Adnan Al-Zarfi reveals his priorities

 

- One Hour Passed
 
%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B2%D8%B1%D9%81%D9%8A-1-3


 

Iraqi Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zarfi revealed his priorities in the event that his government formation succeeds in gaining the confidence of the parliament. This comes in conjunction with the start of five Iraqi blocs dialogue to present a new candidate for prime minister, and Haider al-Abadi's coalition rejected this trend.

Al-Zorfi said - in statements to a group of journalists today - that his assignment from President Barham Saleh was natural and was not the result of a deal with him, stressing that it is an Iraqi option first and last and not an American option as some accuse him, explaining that he went to the United States and obtained his citizenship obligated after being narrowed by it Prisons and detention centers during the previous regime.

He pointed out that he will seek to change the negative world view towards Iraq and build balanced relations with regional and international powers on the basis of common interests with a priority for national reconciliation, pointing out that he started his consultations to form the government and his progress in that depends on the agreement of all political parties and components.

He stressed that the duration of his government’s duties will be one year during which preparations are made for early elections, stressing in this regard his willingness to hold these elections within three months if the political blocs agree to this.

Al-Zarfi summarized his government program according to the challenges facing the country, the most prominent of which is "the external challenge, including the Security Council and the International Alliance, as the position on Iraq appears negative, and we may face sanctions unless this is taken into consideration."

The second challenge, according to Al-Zarfi, is “for the people's protests, which must be dealt with as a priority, especially since the primary demand of the demonstrators is to hold early elections, which must be worked on, as well as to deal seriously with the file of killing and kidnapping the demonstrators, as this cannot be condoned under Any excuse. "
Advertising

He pointed out that the challenge of the financial crisis that Iraq is currently experiencing due to the collapse of oil prices, is one of the most important things that must be faced and working on it in all seriousness, noting that "Iraq now lives on the cash surplus provided by the government of Haider al-Abadi."

He said that the last challenge is the Corona virus, which requires a serious pause at all levels.

Division over commissioning
While Al-Zarfi embarked on a series of informal consultations with several political parties awaiting the Shiite blocs taking a decisive stance towards his mandate, these blocs continue - the coalition of state law (26 seats in Parliament out of 329), the Al-Fateh coalition (48 seats), and the contract bloc The National (18 seats), the Nationalist Bloc (8 seats), and the National Wisdom Stream (19 seats) - dialogues to agree to present a new candidate to the President of the Republic in his place, explaining this by the mechanism of his choice and that it is in violation of the constitution.

On the other hand, the victory coalition led by the former Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi rejected the dialogues taking place to present a candidate instead of Zarfi.

The coalition - whose membership includes Al-Zrafi - said in a statement that "the ongoing dialogues regarding the nomination of a new candidate for prime minister are against the constitution, and it is not permissible to nullify the mandate and go for a new representative before the end of the constitutional period."

He stressed the need to "give the taxpayer his constitutional opportunity, in compliance with the legal contexts and national solidarity."

And last week, Iraqi President Barham Saleh commissioned Al-Zrafi to form the new government, after former Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi stepped down after failing to persuade the political blocs to support his cabinet and his government program.

The next government will succeed the government of Adel Abdul-Mahdi, who resigned on the first of last December, under the pressure of continuous popular protests since the beginning of last October.

Here is an article (link provided) pertaining that man that you referred to Officiallytook: 

 

A Phoenix-area man has died and his wife was in critical condition after the couple took chloroquine phosphate, an additive used to clean fish tanks that is also found in an anti-malaria medication touted by Donald Trump as a treatment for Covid-19.

Banner Health said on Monday the couple in their 60s got sick within half an hour of ingesting the additive. The man could not be resuscitated at hospital but the woman was able to throw up much of the chemical.

“Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure,” the woman told NBC.

She said her advice would be: “Don’t take anything. Don’t believe anything. Don’t believe anything that the president says and his people … call your doctor.”

 

It’s unclear if the couple took chloroquine phosphate specifically because of Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

“Given the uncertainty around Covid-19, we understand that people are trying to find new ways to prevent or treat this virus, but self-medicating is not the way to do so,” said Dr Daniel Brooks, Banner Poison and Drug Information Center medical director.

“The last thing that we want right now is to inundate our emergency departments with patients who believe they found a vague and risky solution that could potentially jeopardize their health.”

At a news conference last week, Trump falsely stated that the Food and Drug Administration had just approved the use of an anti-malaria medication called chloroquine to treat patients infected with coronavirus.

Even after the FDA chief clarified that the drug still needs to be tested for that use, Trump overstated the drug’s potential upside in containing the virus.

Chloroquine is obtained by prescription, and Banner Health is urging medical providers against prescribing it to people who are not hospitalised.

The difference between the fish tank cleaning additive the couple took and the drug used to treat malaria is the way they are formulated.

The man’s death came as the number of Covid-19 cases in Arizona spiked more than 50% in one day, from 152 on Sunday to 235 on Monday, according to the state health department.

Pima county reported its first coronavirus death: a woman in her 50s with an underlying health condition. It was the third Covid-19 death in Arizona. Two men, one in his 70s and one in his 50s, both had underlying conditions.

People have tested positive in 11 of Arizona’s 15 counties, including 139 cases in Maricopa county, the state’s most populous.

For most people, the virus causes only mild or moderate symptoms such as fever and cough. For some, older adults and people with health problems, it can cause more severe illness including pneumonia. The vast majority recover.

Holy Crap - They’re Having Consultations With The Shiite House ! :o 
 

 

‘Butt’ So Far The Consultations Seem To Be Having Constipations ...

 

:D  :D  :D  

 

Designated Iraqi Prime Minister: I did not come up with a deal with Saleh ... I am not an American option

 
The formation of the government began consultations with the Shiite House disputes continuing
 


Monday - 28 Rajab 1441 AH - 23 March 2020 AD 


Baghdad: Hamza Mustafa

 

Iraqi Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zarfi denied that he had come in a deal with the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, or that he had come with the aim of breaking the will of anyone, in response to the accusations against him and the president regarding the mechanism assigned to him to form the government without a Shiite-Shiite agreement.

Al-Zarfi During his meeting with a group of Iraqi media professionals attended by "Al-Sharq Al-Awsat" at his residence yesterday, he said: "My assignment came naturally, being one of the candidates for the position, and the deadline for the constitutional deadline to choose a commissioner to form a government was not met, and it was not through a deal in any way with President Barham Saleh. ” Al-Zorfi added, “The commissioning method is very natural, especially since the President of the Republic has exhausted all the methods that can be followed, whether he adheres to the constitutional deadline, and his request to the political blocs concerned to resolve the matter a day before the end of the deadline, in addition to directing an inquiry to the Federal Court.”

Regarding what is said about being an American option for the position, he stressed: “I am an Iraqi option first and foremost, and if one is forced during a period of his life where prisons and detention centers were constrained during the time of the previous regime, to compel him to this or that country, including the United States, to become an American This is an unreasonable logic. He explained that «what concerns me primarily is building balanced relations with all countries of the region; whether they are Arab as the surrounding Iraq is Arab, and Islamic as the Iraqi vicinity is also Islamic, in addition to establishing a balanced state relations with regional and international powers on the basis of shared interests with priority of our interests National ».

And regarding his options in forming the next Iraqi government in light of many crises, including the crisis of his relationship with his partners in the Shiite house, Al-Zorfi said that he began yesterday his consultations to form the government “that interests me to participate in everyone”, indicating that it is “in addition to being a crisis government in view of "Because of the nature of the challenges it faces that require everyone's participation in it, its mission will be only a year during which preparations are made for early elections." Al-Zorfi stressed that «the decision to hold early elections is not only a government decision; as much as it is a political decision related to the nature of the preparations of the blocs and political forces to conduct such elections, and therefore, if the political blocs asked me if I went ahead in forming the government to conduct them within 3 months, I I will be ready for that. ”

On the persistence of divergent attitudes within the Shiite house about him, Al-Zorfi says that "regardless of the positions, I will only move with the agreement of all parties and components, because I want a government in which everyone participates", revealing his continued contacts with the various parties, including those that still maintain reservations On his choice.

Regarding the government program that Al-Zrafi will present to the political forces, he pointed out that "my government program is brief according to the main challenges we face now, which is the external challenge, including the Security Council and the International Alliance, as the position on Iraq appears negative, and we may be subject to sanctions unless We take that into consideration. ” 

As for the second challenge, which Al-Zorfi considered important during the coming stage, it is “the mass protests that must be dealt with as a priority of our work, especially since the main demand of the demonstrators is to hold early elections, which must be worked on, knowing that the demonstrations were pure Iraqi, and did not It was partisan or politicized, and therefore it is necessary to rise to the level of what it represented as a challenge to all of us as a political class and society ”, indicating that“ among what must be done at the level of demonstrations is to deal seriously with the file of the killing and kidnapping of demonstrators, as it cannot be tolerated Under what pretext.

And Al-Zrafi said, "The challenge of the financial crisis that Iraq is currently experiencing due to the collapse of oil prices is one of the most important things that must be faced and working hard," noting that "Iraq now lives on the cash surplus provided by the government of Haider al-Abadi." 

He explained that «among the things that must be worked on is to conduct negotiations with OPEC countries in this regard, in addition to taking effective measures in the field of encouraging investment and providing job opportunities. 

And on the last challenge that needs to be faced, he said, "It is a (Corona) challenge that requires us to take a serious stand at all levels, and that is what we will focus on in my government program."

The turbulent Shiite position between the recent coup d'etat and home meetings

 

The report published by the Kuwaiti newspaper "Al-Jarida" about the United States of America preparing for a military coup in Iraq sparked various reactions and a mixed resonance among the Shiite political forces, between its disregard for it and taking it seriously, and preparing for the "worst possibilities" ..

the "Walkers" alliance Supported by the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, he saw that the report should not be underestimated and that it would be dealt with seriously .. The

 MP from the "Saeron" coalition, Riyadh Al-Masoudi, called for not underestimating what was stated in the report and not underestimating it.

Masoudi stressed: "The Iraqi intelligence services should take this matter seriously, as well as the government summoning the US ambassador in Baghdad to clarify the truth contained in the newspaper report."

But the Houthi coalition led by Hadi al-Amiri looked at the matter from another angle and promised that he would not deviate from being one of the tools of pressure to pass the government of Prime Minister-designate Adnan al-Zarfi, especially since "Al-Fath" had previously described Zarfi as "an American-backed" ..

According to the representative of the parliamentary bloc For Abbas Abbas Al-Zameli, the talk about a military coup in Iraq is a pressure card on the Shiite forces to accept the Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zorfi.

Al-Zamili said: “The talk about the United States of America supporting some parties to cause a military coup in the capital, Baghdad, is tantamount to A pressure card on the Shiite forces rejecting the Prime Minister DONC designate Adnan Zurfi for approval of the assumption of the presidency of the Iraqi government, "adding:" The talk about a coup in Iraq is unlikely and can not be accepted. "

Rather, Mukhtar al-Musawi, the other member of the "Al-Fateh" coalition, accused Adnan al-Zarfi of being "one of the arms of the American administration."

Accordingly, al-Moussawi stressed: "The Al-Zarfi government will not see the light and may receive the same fate as the government of Designated Allawi, who failed to obtain the confidence of Parliament," noting: "Al-Zarfi’s mandate to form the government is more provocative and carries hostile messages."

He revealed the intention of his alliance to hold talks between the Shiite, Kurdish and Sunni powers to choose an alternative to the prime minister.

The deputy explained: "The talks will also discuss the formation of an opposition front for the nomination and the selection of a consensual candidate acceptable to the political forces, which will be an alternative to Zarafi by forming the next government."

Another deputy from the Ameri Alliance, Hamid al-Musawi, added his voice to the two former representatives of the alliance, stressing: "The complete alignment of Adnan al-Zarfi with the American administration did not give the political blocs room to provide support for him," noting: "The Prime Minister-designate Adnan al-Zarfi (is a blatant American)." ), Rejected popularly and by reference. "

In charge of his part, he faced this attack from the "conquest" coalition by confirming that he would proceed with his mission entrusted to him by the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, according to the Iraqi constitution ..

A source close to Al-Zarfi put the points on the letters by declaring: "Al-Zarfi does not intend to apologize for the assignment while he is continuing in The formation of his government, and dialogues and meetings in this regard are continuing, "stressing that" the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, is still a supporter of al-Zarfi.

The American side has not issued, at least until now, any official reaction to the "newspaper" report, and left the door open to interpretations, interpretations, and turmoil in the reactions of the Shiite forces, who are living in their worst days with disputes, sharp divisions, and preoccupation with home meetings, from al-Hakim’s home to al-Maliki’s house to a house Al Amri ..

23rd March, 2020

The text of the speech of the President of the Republic of the Iraqi people on the Corona epidemic

At a time when the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, called on the Iraqi people to show solidarity in order to face the threat of the Corona virus, he acknowledged the existence of serious political confrontations in the absence of a government with full powers, calling on the political forces and parties to solidarity with each other and with the plight of our people, to leave the country Unfortunately, the state of political turmoil has multiplied in recent months.

 

On Monday evening, Saleh addressed a speech to the Iraqi people on the threat of the new Corona epidemic. The Independent newspaper publishes its text, as reported by the media office of the President of the Republic:

I take the opportunity to bless you on the day of the noble Prophet’s messenger, to talk with you about the latest developments that we live together due to the threat of the new Corona virus outbreak, which was declared by the World Health Organization as a “pandemic” that threatens the life of mankind, and the challenges that fall upon humanity, Of them, and those with chronic diseases.

In the past few weeks, we are saying goodbye to family and loved ones who were infected with this virus and did not survive, and most of them were, as the crisis cell formed by the government confirms within the scope of Diwani 55, they were exposed to infection while they were outside Iraq, we call them with mercy and forgiveness and our hearts are broken with lost heart.

Unfortunately, during the past few days, we have witnessed a noticeable increase in the numbers of the injured, due to mixing and gathering in public places and lack of awareness of the seriousness of this epidemic and its repercussions, despite the fact that the authorities in the Federal Government, the Kurdistan Regional Government and the provincial authorities have taken exceptional measures to restrict casualties and block closure And awareness of hygiene, and religious authorities and political, social, cultural and media figures have interacted positively with these measures positively, and we are still waiting for more Social awareness about how to deal with this global epidemic and its consequences responsibly by everyone without exception.

O sweetheart ..

It is our national duty to be clear about what amounts to this crisis, and to acknowledge the difficulty of the situation, and that there are risks that may exacerbate (God forbid) in our country in the event that the curfew instructions, non-mixing, and health protection measures are not complied with, and we also have to acknowledge that the conditions of the structure Our health system is not doing better, and that it places more responsibility on us and calls us to more togetherness to overcome this crisis.

While I highly appreciate the initiatives of political and social personalities to help in this field, I confirm the call to all the social forces, the well-off, and the owners of capital and relevant organizations to show the utmost degree of cooperation and coordination with the official official institutions concerned, and launch constructive social initiatives alongside the state institutions to face the current crisis and exit From them with minimal losses, God willing.

We should all join together to provide food and health supplies for our people, and for the media to have a leading role in urging humanitarian initiatives such as calling for a temporary reduction in home rents, delaying the collection of loans by banks, and providing the necessary needs for needy families and those with limited incomes. And that we do not forget our people in the camps of displacement and the hardships they suffer, and that endeavors be made to end their tragedy, protect them, provide their needs, and facilitate their return to their areas, God willing.

This difficult moment makes it imperative for all of us to stand together as a people known for their zeal, frankness and patience over adversity and calamity .. We are a people who possesses an authentic historical and human experience, which has enabled them to overcome adversity through history and return to life and strength and return to life.

Today, it will not be different from that bright history, for our people will once again prove what it has proven time and time again, that it is an example of hardness, synergy, understanding and sacrifice in the face of adversity and challenges.

We Iraqis, Arabs, Kurds, and Turkmen, Muslims and Christians, and all other religions, sects, and sects, responsible and citizens, rich and poor, employee, worker, and farmer, women, men, youth, and children, we all stand before this casualty and this challenge one hand, so that we can fight against this battle There is no choice but hope and self-confidence, after every day and night, the sun of humanity will inevitably shine.

Dears ..

Our caution and actions must be at the level of seriousness of this epidemic, but: without panic and disorder they take the fullest causes of prevention and treatment, as the rational reference recommended, and as the competent health authorities called, to remember the overwhelming majority of those injured when they recovered with the help of God who is working with the help of God who is working with the help of God who is working with the help of God who is working with the help of God who is working with the help of God who is working with the help of God who is the one who is working with God’s help and effort Now, there is also a determined effort worldwide to provide vaccines and treatments for this epidemic.

With all of this, I assure you once again of the necessity to adhere to health instructions, home ownership, refrain from mixing with others, setting a distance of no less than two meters with others, and reviewing the responsible health authorities when feeling the serious symptoms of the Corona epidemic.

It is well known that this commitment is not an easy matter, and it has economic and social effects, and pressures on people's lives and their freedom of movement and work, but they are necessary and urgent measures required by the stage, and it is necessary to prepare for them also by state institutions and social institutions, as well as socially wide scope To relieve burdens on low-income people, lessors and daily wage workers, we are proudly appreciative of the generous initiatives presented by religious authorities, relief organizations, social figures and activists in this field.

Together, God willing, we will be able to overcome this crisis, especially if we put our efforts together, and we adopted helping the security man to carry out his mission, supporting health teams and teams to carry out their duties, and the rich join hands with the poor, the manager with his employees, and the father with his family.

Sweethearts ..

Our country is facing the challenge of the global epidemic, which is also witnessing a serious political bickering in the absence of government full powers, and we, as we call on our people to solidarity, it is the door of the first to call first political forces and parties to solidarity among themselves and with the plight of our people, to get out of the country from turmoil Unfortunately, the politician has multiplied in recent months.

We affirm that this is a dangerous and serious moment, and everyone should bear their responsibility, to rise to the level of responsibility that our people have shown in dealing with crises.

A salute of pride, appreciation and respect to the health teams and teams of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, experts, assistants and technicians throughout the country as they continue day and night to follow up on the injured and care for them until recovery with God's help.

Greetings and love for the military and security forces in all parts of Iraq, to every soldier, security man, policeman and crowd, and with his participation he sincerely fulfills his duty to preserve health security in neighborhoods, villages and cities, and at the same time defends the security and stability of our people and the boundaries of terrorism and its stability and borders.

A greeting to every Iraqi mother who embraces her children to protect them from infection and teaches them the health basics to protect them, and every father urges his family not to leave the house except for necessity and is keen to alleviate their anxiety and fear.

Greetings to all our young men and women who adhere to health instructions, spread awareness through social media, fight rumors, refuse to spread despair and frustration among citizens, and launch positive initiatives to help those in need.

Our people will triumph over their consciousness, wisdom, solidarity, knowledge, originality and patience over the Coronian epidemic, just as they triumphed over the epidemic of terrorism.

(For the hardest is easy, for the hardest is easy.)

May God protect and protect you .. Health and safety for you and your families and your love

And a speedy recovery for all the sick and the injured

Mercy and eternity for the martyrs of Iraq

Peace, mercy and blessings of God.

Here is an article (link provided) pertaining that man that you referred to Officiallytook: 

 

A Phoenix-area man has died and his wife was in critical condition after the couple took chloroquine phosphate, an additive used to clean fish tanks that is also found in an anti-malaria medication touted by Donald Trump as a treatment for Covid-19.

Banner Health said on Monday the couple in their 60s got sick within half an hour of ingesting the additive. The man could not be resuscitated at hospital but the woman was able to throw up much of the chemical.

“Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure,” the woman told NBC.

She said her advice would be: “Don’t take anything. Don’t believe anything. Don’t believe anything that the president says and his people … call your doctor.”

 

It’s unclear if the couple took chloroquine phosphate specifically because of Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

“Given the uncertainty around Covid-19, we understand that people are trying to find new ways to prevent or treat this virus, but self-medicating is not the way to do so,” said Dr Daniel Brooks, Banner Poison and Drug Information Center medical director.

“The last thing that we want right now is to inundate our emergency departments with patients who believe they found a vague and risky solution that could potentially jeopardize their health.”

At a news conference last week, Trump falsely stated that the Food and Drug Administration had just approved the use of an anti-malaria medication called chloroquine to treat patients infected with coronavirus.

Even after the FDA chief clarified that the drug still needs to be tested for that use, Trump overstated the drug’s potential upside in containing the virus.

Chloroquine is obtained by prescription, and Banner Health is urging medical providers against prescribing it to people who are not hospitalised.

The difference between the fish tank cleaning additive the couple took and the drug used to treat malaria is the way they are formulated.

The man’s death came as the number of Covid-19 cases in Arizona spiked more than 50% in one day, from 152 on Sunday to 235 on Monday, according to the state health department.

Pima county reported its first coronavirus death: a woman in her 50s with an underlying health condition. It was the third Covid-19 death in Arizona. Two men, one in his 70s and one in his 50s, both had underlying conditions.

People have tested positive in 11 of Arizona’s 15 counties, including 139 cases in Maricopa county, the state’s most populous.

For most people, the virus causes only mild or moderate symptoms such as fever and cough. For some, older adults and people with health problems, it can cause more severe illness including pneumonia. The vast majority recover.

From the article referenced above.

 

In the meantime, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the ‘compassionate use’ of chloroquine to treat coronavirus patients in the United States. In addition, recent guidelines from South Korea and China report that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine are effective antiviral therapeutic treatments for novel coronavirus.
