UPDATED APRIL 10, 2020 – Some countries around the world are recording
hundreds thousands of new cases a day. One such country is Iran, which has become the epicenter of the spread of the COVID-19 in the whole Middle East region. Below is a “table” listing the latest country coronavirus spread in the Middle East.
COUNTRY BY COUNTRY CORONAVIRUS SPREAD IN THE MIDDLE EAST
COVID-19 incubates for up to 14 days. Unless a country tests all of its people for the virus, there is no way of knowing the exact number of cases and who is spreading it. Testing has been slow and late in many countries, including the United States.
In fact, thanks to Donald Trump irresponsible behavior, the United States has recorded the most coronavirus cases in the world (377,538 as of April 7, 2020).
The less tests a country performs, the higher the chance the disease will spread uncontrollably.
ASSAD MUZZLING DATA
As far as Syria is concerned, as of April 7, incredibly the Assad regime is reporting 19 cases of the COVID-19 spreading in the country. Despite the number of mercenaries Iran recruits from highly contagious countries to fight alongside the Assad forces. Including its own IRGC.
Stories have surfaced already that the regime is muzzling Syrian doctors from disclosing the COVID-19 true infection numbers to the outside world. That’s authoritarianism at its worst.
IRAN IS LYING ABOUT ITS DEATH RATE
In MENA, Iran has it the worst because of brisk commercial activities between Iran and China. It includes oil buying and selling in defiance of U.S. sanctions against Iran.

Satellite images appear to show evidence of mass burial pits in Iran to accommodate a growing number of deaths from the coronavirus outbreak, as experts question Iran’s official death toll.
Iranian IRGC fighters are engaged in both the Syrian and the Yemeni theaters. Yet, both countries reported a very low infection rate.
The table below is as accurate as is the reporting provided by the respective Middle Eastern government authorities. The New Cases column adjusts every 12-24 hours on the basis of each country reporting their new cases. Some of the Arab countries lack the resources to accurately report cases every 24 hours. This might explain why some of the columns for New Cases and Latest Deaths are empty.
