Mehrdad Minavand and Ali Ansarian, two of most famous ex-football players in Iran are now dead because of coronavirus. Mehrdad was 45 and Ali was 43; both very young and healthy.

Last time they were with each other, they were presenting at a sports TV show sitting next to each other when Mehrdad said on live TV that he doesn’t feel well and then fell. It is believed that Ali was infected in that TV show. They weren’t wearing masks and were sitting closely.

Sadly, many believe that the virus only affects old people and young people are immune to it. Many think the chances of surviving are high, while it’s only a chance. You may be on that few percent part where people die.

Ali Ansarian and Mehrdad Minavand are just two examples of many many young people who are not among us any more, sadly. Even if you don’t want safety for yourself, please wear a mask and keep your distance from people so you won’t spread the virus.

Some people are infected with it but don’t get ill but this doesn’t mean that the virus is not effective on people, you still can spread the virus and endanger people’s lives.

Think about it, you’ll be a murderer if you spread the virus and people die from it.

Please wash your hands regularly, keep your distance from people, and most importantly wear a N95 mask. Please don’t listen to media that is trying to convince you do otherwise. Instead of media, listen to scientists and doctors.

I know the vaccine is in production and some people are vaccinated but it may take long till we all get vaccinated so please until then, follow the protocols and keep safe.
