Iranian Instagram star ‘Zombie Angelina Jolie’ is breathing after contracting the corona virus

An Angelina Jolie ‘Zombie’ lookalike is said to be on a ventilator in Iran after she fell ill with coronavirus while in prison for her activity on Instagram.

Social media star Sahar Tabar, 22, whose real name is Fatemeh Khishvand, from Tehran, became known for posting images of her eerily skinny face.

But the 22-year-old, whose lawyers had asked her to be released amid the country’s serious COVID-19 outbreak, would now be seriously ill.

Based in the USA Center for Human Rights in Iran said a judge in the country refused to issue her bail, despite the fact that coronavirus is widespread in the country’s prisons.

Last month, the country released approximately 85,000 prisoners to attempt to fight the deadly virus, thought to have killed thousands more than official figures suggest.

“We find it unacceptable that this young woman has now contracted the coronavirus under these conditions while her detention order has been extended in prison for all that time,” human rights lawyer Payam Derafshan told the organization on Wednesday.

Sahar was arrested in October on charges of blasphemy, incitement to violence, income from improper means, and encouraging young people to become corrupt, Tasnim news agency reported.

She was detained by order of the Tehran court, which deals with “cultural crimes and social and moral corruption.”

The social media star became famous in 2017 after reportedly undergoing 50 surgeries to make her look like the Oscar-winning actress Ms. Jolie.

She later confirmed that her look was mainly achieved through makeup and montage.

Judge Mohammad Moghiseh has repeatedly denied Sahar’s bail, even as the kingdom declared more than 70,000 cases of coronavirus.

Mr. Derafshan said it had become a “habit” for the authorities to “deny everything” after claiming that Sahar had not contracted the disease.

“It makes no sense to deny this. The prison director must acknowledge the infection and admit it was hospitalized, “he said.

He added that Sahar and other non-violent prisoners should also be released because of the outbreak.

On Tuesday, Iran’s own parliament said that the country has likely suffered twice as many coronavirus deaths as it says in the country’s official death toll, according to a parliamentary report.

Investigators said the official total included only those who died in the hospital and who tested positive for the virus before dying – meaning the actual toll is higher.

Iran has officially reported 4,777 deaths from the virus – a figure that has raised suspicions among experts and the international community.

The kingdom also reported 76,389 cases of the virus, making it by far the worst outbreak in the Middle East.

The 46-page report by the Iranian Parliament’s Research Center, published online, has the weight that it was written by non-partisan experts in the country.

Iranian health officials did not comment on the report.

It represents the highest charge to date from within the government of the Islamic Republic that its figures are questionable.

In July, Sahar first revealed her past appearance and shared a side-by-side photo of her pre- and postoperative surgery.

She later admitted that she had surgery such as a nose job, lip fillers, and liposuction, but insisted that most of her unusual appearance is due to makeup and editing.

She said, “This is Photoshop and makeup. Every time I publish a photo, I paint my face in an increasingly fun way. It is a way of expressing yourself, a kind of art. My fans know that this is not my real face. ‘

She added, “I didn’t even think of looking like Jolie. Nor did I want to resemble the cartoon character the Corpse Bride.

“Now I understand that I have something to do with it, but I am a muse myself and remembering someone is not an end in itself.”

In some cases, she can be seen wearing a loose hijab over her hair and a white bandage on her nose that is often seen on the streets of Tehran.

Cosmetic surgery is extremely popular in the Islamic republic, with tens of thousands of operations performed annually.

Instagram is the only major social media service accessible in Iran, unlike Facebook and Twitter, and the Telegram messaging service is officially banned.

Iran's actual death toll is likely twice as high as the official figure of 4,777, as it does not include the deaths who died at home or were not tested before they died, a report said.
