TEHRAN(Basirat): Mark Dubowitz, the Chief Executive of Washington-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), expressed happiness over what he claims as achievements of a fatal epidemic in Iran, but admitted that Washington's harsh sanctions against Tehran has no effect so far.

In another outrageous claim, Dubowitz stated that Tehran has “spread terrorism” in the Middle East and “now it’s spreading the coronavirus”, just months after the Unites States had assassinated Iran's anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani in a third country.

Later, he advised the administration of President Donald Trump to send coronavirus testing kits and mask to Iran, at the time that Governor Gavin Newsom has stated that California is monitoring thousands people for coronavirus symptoms, but the state lacks test kits and is being held back by federal testing rules.

Nearly 245 people have been tested positive for coronavirus in Iran since the infection was identified in a city in Central country last week. The government has put the number of deaths at 26 as of Thursday noon local time.

Dubowitz's remarks come as the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Tuesday issued warnings about the virus, urging Americans to prepare and take precautionary measures.

The warning came as President Donald Trump tried to play down fears and claimed in a tweet Monday that the coronavirus was “very much under control in the USA”.

The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, which started in China in December, has since infected over 80,000 worldwide in about 40 countries and claimed over 2,800 lives. There are now about 60 total cases of the virus in the US, including the 42 people brought back to the US who were aboard the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship.
