Muqtada Al-Sadr Accuses Trump of Spreading Coronavirus Among US’ Opponents

Influential Iraqi Shia cleric Muqtada Al-Sadr accused US President Donald Trump of spreading the coronavirus among America’s opponents.

In a tweet, Al-Sadr said: “Trump … You and your likes are accused of spreading this disease, especially since most of those who suffer from it are against America.”

“Trump, yesterday you claimed that America had toppled great empires and suppressed terrorism, and today you are fighting a virus that is not visible to the naked eye, should not you be ashamed of yourself,” he added.

The number of novel coronavirus cases in Iraq rose to 71 on Tuesday, according to the country’s health minister.

The country reported its seventh coronavirus death on Monday and the first in the southeastern city of Basra.

The global death toll has surpassed 4,000 with more than 113,000 confirmed cases, the majority in China, leading the World Health Organisation to declare it a pandemic.
