Iran has been hit especially hard by the coronavirus outbreak as the number of confirmed cases tops 60,000, more than any other country in the Middle East. The region, however, is beginning to see a spike in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases. Jon Gambrell, AP News Director of the Persian Gulf and Iran, explains why some countries in the Middle East are seeing an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, compared to others; he also weighs in on relations between the U.S. and Iran following a Washington-directed strike in January that killed an Iranian general.
