Sahar Tabar, the zombie Angelina Jolie is now on a ventilator after she was tested positive with coronavirus while in prison in Iran.
The 22-year-old Instagram star from Tehran became famous after she posted images of her spooky, skinny face that look like Oscar-winning star Jolie with the angled facial features. However, some fans compared her to Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride.
Tabar was arrested in October 2019 on charges of blasphemy, inciting violence, and encouraging the corruption of young people from her Instagram posts.
Her lawyers already appealed for her immediate release as she is reportedly seriously ill and survived by ventilators while in prison. However, Center For Human Rights In Iran said Presiding Judge Mohammad Moghiseh of Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court, has repeatedly refused to grant her bail.
A number of coronavirus cases have been recorded in recent times in the country’s prisons. Currently, Iran has a total of over 76,389 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with 4,777 virus-related deaths. These make Iran the worst epidemic in the Middle East.
However, the actual figures could be higher as the official tally only included those who died in the hospital and tested positive for the virus before their death.
