COVID-19: Iran's situation in comparison to the world

Iran is among the countries most affected by the coronavirus worldwide, with 5,098 confirmed cases in Tehran alone as of March 22, 2020. The death rate of COVID-19, or the number of known deaths divided by the number of confirmed cases, in Iran was over 7.79 percent making it the second highest death rate worldwide after Italy. However, it is important to note that the death rate is not the same as the mortality rate (which reflects the number of deaths based on an at-risk population).

COVID-19: background information

COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that had not previously been identified in humans. The first case was detected in the Hubei province of China at the end of December 2019. Thousands of new cases are being reported around the world each day, and because the illness has only recently been detected, it is not known exactly how the virus is spreading from person to person. However, the outbreak of the SARS coronavirus, which began in 2002, is thought to have spread via cough and sneeze droplets.
