TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency says authorities have confirmed two cases of the new coronavirus, the first in the country.

The report on Wednesday did not elaborate on the nationality of the two people infected by the virus.

ISNA quoted an official in the country’s health ministry, Kiyanoush Jahanpour, as saying that “since last two days, some suspected cases of the new coronavirus were found.”

The new virus emerged in China in December. Since then, more than 70,000 people have been infected globally, with more than 2,000 deaths being reported, mostly in China.
