Iraqi Shia Pilgrims Returning From Syria Test Positive For Coronavirus: Officials



Some Shia pilgrims returning to Iraq from Syria have tested positive for coronavirus, raising concern that such pilgrim travel could be a source for a larger spread of the disease around the country, a senior Iraqi official and health officials said.


Iraq has recorded 547 coronavirus cases and 42 deaths to date, most of them in the past week.


Health authorities said there were at least 11 cases of coronavirus in the Shia holy city of Karbala among pilgrims who returned last week from Syria after visiting a Shia shrine there, according to the governor of Karbala.
