At least, 5 Iranian lawmakers contract COVID-19 as cases surge

At least five members of Iran’s newly elected parliament have contracted the new coronavirs disease.

According to the semi-official Tasnim news agency, MPs Mohammad Tala Mazloomi, Syed Mohammad Mohid, Hosseinali Haji Dalegani, Ali Asgar Zaheri, and Mohammad Mehdi Zahedi all tested positive for COVID-19.

Iran saw a significant drop in new virus infections in April, prompting the government to ease pandemic-related restrictions.

The decision, however, boomeranged as a second wave of the disease engulfed different parts of the country a few weeks later.
