In February, there was much discussion after the Iranian deputy health minister held a press conference downplaying concerns over COVID-19 coronavirus -- while appearing to be sick.
“I too have been infected with coronavirus,” Iraj Harirchi admitted the next day.
On Tuesday, there was similar speculation after National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow held a press conference updating the nation on the epidemic.
Here's some of what people were saying:
