Iran coronavirus: US sanctions could turn crisis into catastrophe

y all accounts, the outbreak of coronavirus in Iran poses a major existential threat that could overwhelm the healthcare system and other resources to combat the disease, which has been sweeping across the country like a tsunami.

At the same time, it has delivered a significant blow to the legitimacy of coercive US sanctions on Iran, giving them a new air of cruelty unsustainable by any civilisational standard. Unless the US government steps back from its “maximum pressure strategy” - at least for the duration of this epidemic - the sanctions regime is bound to be stigmatised in the world community as an art of dangerous cruelty, rather than a legitimate foreign policy tool.
