Photos: Life in the Time of COVID-19


Iran is one of the main countries hit by the COVID-19 virus and has been in quarantine for a few weeks now. The US Institute of Peace has a great series of photos showing how the country is coping. (I found the pictures of elementary students being educated through TV broadcasts especially interesting.) The country is coping pretty well - though people are really disappointed that the Persian New Year festivities, two weeks of celebration of their biggest holiday, have been cancelled.
