Iranian MP Fatema Rahbar died due to coronavirus, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported on Saturday.

There were mixed reports on her condition Friday.

Tasnim news agency said Rahbar was “connected to an oxygen tank and doctors expressed concern about her condition.”

The semi-official ISNA news agency reported that she was in a coma.

Rahbar served as an MP from 2004 to 2016 and was recently elected again in Iran’s Feb. 21 polls.

Several other government officials have been infected with coronavirus, including two Iranian vice presidents and two advisors to the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

Several neighboring countries including Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Kuwait have banned travel to and from Iran as a precautionary measure against the spread of the new virus.
