They called it "semi official" but there's nothing official about it at all. It is definitely not up to Tasnim, IRNA, FARS or PressTV and none of the real news web sites in Iran have stated this yet. I don't consider ILNA to be enough to bother with, compared to the other 4 it is sparse and weak. It figures FOX would quote such a site because it hides the fact that Iran can beat them no sweat. It makes Iran look backwards. Anyway
Wait and see. Tasnim is THE REFERENCE, there's nothing beyond that, and alarmingly they are quoting 12 dead. Fox dropped the ball on that also, saying that "12 dead" has been the number stated by Iran since Feb 19 when in fact, up until today all 4 of the real news agencies in Iran reported 8 dead, 12 is a new number that just showed up this morning. That is alarming but still down in statistical chatter.
Very important: The coronavirus "causing deaths in Iran" is a completely different genetic strain than the one that showed up in China. So what's the deal? Did Israel custom tailor a virus for Persians? Possibly, but doing so would be risky business. That's way too close to home, unless a certain Ashkenazi tribe is not even close to actually being "semitic". 100, 000 radiations proves the Ashkenazi want the Sephards gone as much as they want everyone else gone so if it's adios to them that's a bonus!.
