Multiple Iranian reports announced that Iranian Instagram influencer Fatemeh Khishvand, known by her username Sahar Tabar, who drew followers by her plastic surgeries, wicked makeup, and for her striking resemblance to Hollywood star Angelina Jolie, has tested positive for Coronavirus.

Tabar contracted the virus while serving her prison sentence, and was taken to hospital for treatment.

It is reported that the Iranian Instagram influencer was infected for a while because it ravaged her lungs and developed severe pneumonia, making her unable to call the guard to tell him that she was sick due to her constant coughing.

The Iranian authorities arrested Tabar last October, under the charge of publishing and promoting pornography through videos that were published on Instagram.

It is worth mentioning that the World Health Organization (WHO) declared coronavirus a global pandemic on March 11 as the new virus has rapidly spread to more people from Asia to the Middle East, Europe, and the United States.

The novel coronavirus, which was first reported in Wuhan, China, has infected more than one million people and killed over 136,044 worldwide. It also hit a number of celebrities and top political figures around the world.

Transmission of viruses between humans happens when someone comes into contact with an infected person’s secretions, such as droplets in a cough.

They can also be transmitted by coming into contact with something an infected person has touched and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes.

It is known that older people appear to be more vulnerable to the effects of the emerging virus.

Several Arab countries have tightened restrictions on movement and travel, with the aim of curbing the spread of the Coronavirus, and some have pledged billions of dollars in economic stimulus programs to reduce the economic repercussions of the crisis.

The virus caused complete paralysis in all activities and events with large gatherings worldwide due to concerns over the spread of the virus.
