WATCH: Iran health chief mops sweaty brow during coronavirus briefing and COUGHS in TV interview before own diagnosis

The country’s state media reported Tuesday that Harirchi had contracted the illness, but the video from Monday’s press conference, on Iran’s response to the outbreak, shows Harirchi repeatedly mopping his brow and wiping his nose just hours prior to succumbing to the illness.

The health chief appeared dishevelled at times, sweating profusely during the press conference. He denied claims that 50 people had died from the virus in Qom, adding that he would resign if that were the case. 

He also gave an interview to Iranian TV where he could be seen coughing several times and appeared to wipe his nose.

The minister has no mask or protective clothing on in the videos, and could therefore have passed the virus on to multiple people in the vicinity. The coronavirus death toll in the country currently stands at 15, according to IRNA, with 95 infected. 

Iran is experiencing the deadliest outbreak so far outside of China, where the virus originated.
