Iran news agency: Death toll from new virus in Qom is at 50
Iran's semiofficial ILNA news agency is reporting that the death toll from the new coronavirus in the city of Qom is 50
It seems like OP confused the number of infected with the number of deaths, of what we know of anyways.
"Iran’s health ministry raised Sunday the death toll from the new virus to 8 people in the Middle Eastern country"
"Health ministry spokesman Kianoush Jahanpour told state TV that there were now 43 confirmed cases of the illness in Iran."
Yesterday i saw +40 ppl dead in iran cuz or corona in news so it is too much possible that 50 person are died from corona
(Also saw in tv the earthquake that happend in iran (it happend somewhere close to turkey and turkish villages got damage))
