The Islamic State (ISIS) asked its terrorists across the world to avoid travel to countries affected with novel coronavirus which has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation.
Any sick jihadists already in Europe, however, should stay there — presumably to sicken infidels, according to a ‘sharia’ directive printed in the group’s al-Naba newsletter, the Daily Mail reported.
The newsletter also instructs the healthy jihadists not to enter the land of the epidemic and the afflicted should not exit from it.
The militant group based in Iraq has also asked its followers to have faith in God and that the pandemic is also happening for a reason as the disease will only strike the ones who the God has chosen. The banned organisation has said one must avoid sneezing out in the open and cover their nose and mouths while sneezing, much on the lines of guidelines issued by health experts across the world.
Coronavirus has claimed over 5,000 lives while over 1,35,000 people have been infected. In Iraq, as many as 110 people have been infected with the virus so far. The number of infected people in India has crossed century and while two died due to coronavirus.
