The Iranian city of Qom is shutting down schools and universities following the deaths of two people from the coronavirus, Iran's state-run news agency IRNA reported Wednesday.

An adviser to the country's health minister said the two victims were located in Qom, a city 140 kilometers (86 miles) south of Tehran.

"Two Iranians, who tested positive earlier today for the new coronavirus, died of respiratory complications, senility, and faulty system of immunity in the intensive care unit where they were isolated", the spokesman of the Islamic Republic Ministry of Health, Kianoush Jahanpour, disclosed. Only five of the reported deaths from the disease have occurred outside China so far.

Meanwhile, the state-run Iran Students News Agency (ISNA) reported on Wednesday that there was an unspecified number of other suspected cases now under quarantine.

The Associated Press quoted a Wednesday report from the "semiofficial ISNA news agency" in which a Health Ministry official said, "some suspected cases of the new coronavirus" have been found.

Two elderly people have died in Iran after testing positive for the new coronavirus, according to health officials.

COVID-19, as the virus is officially known, was first detected in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in late December.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has also declared the outbreak a global health emergency.

It can worsen to pneumonia, which can be fatal.

Iran has applied safety measure on arrival flights at its airports to control a possible spread of the virus. The ministry said the person was hospitalized and in isolation.

The patient is said not to be an Egyptian national however.

An African country - Egypt, recorded its first case of the virus earlier in the week. Experts and African leaders have expressed concern that should the virus spread there, it might wreak havoc among less developed countries with fewer health resources.
