  • Rectangle of Death A few months ago, a report of a new and dangerous disease in China that was broadcast on television caught my attention. I thought to myself, what conditions might occur if this disease enters Iran? On February 18, 2020, Iran contracted coronary heart disease; The fear of contracting this disease was quite evident among the people and took the lives of many people, as well as creating difficult economic conditions for the people. But in the meantime, the issue of burying the dead of this mysterious disease has created a new challenge. With the fatwa of the Supreme Leader of Iran on the necessity of observing the religious principles in different stages of burial, the deceased for the first time in the city of Tabriz, which has one of the largest shrines in the country; By strictly observing the health protocols in block 65 (burial place of the coronation deceased), the deceased of this disease were buried. White death without the presence of the deceased's family watching from a distance; Volunteer students who now wore clothes other than their own and performed religious rites for the deceased; Disinfectants that changed the atmosphere of Block 65 like a strange stage; A white storm that brought white death. Everyone and everyone had created an apocalyptic atmosphere. It was there that "death" took on new and more suspended meanings for me; That man, despite all the great progress, is still weak and small.
