But Geng Zhige found after verification that the description of this picture on the Internet is not true.
The picture below is the one circulated on the Internet today, claiming that no one wore a mask when Iranian officials visited the confirmed vice president.
To be honest, brother Geng Zhige believed this picture at first. After all, the day before the Iranian vice president was diagnosed, she and her colleagues were unprepared to attend the cabinet meeting of the Iranian government. She was also close to Iranian President Mahmoud Rouhani.
However, when Geng Zhige verified todays photo, no mainstream foreign media reported it on any foreign news or social platforms. It started to make me wonder where the photo came from.
So, we used the Iranian vice presidents name masoumeh Ebtekar and hospital to search on the overseas social platform twitter, and found a man certified as an official of the United Nations Environment Programme. In 2014, we published a post saying that he visited the vice president who was hospitalized in a car accident in the hospital.
Following this lead, we found a picture of the official visiting Irans vice president in a 2014 UNEP report. In this picture, the vice presidents bedspread, her clothes and indoor furnishings are very consistent with the picture that Iranian officials go to the hospital to see her, no one wears a mask, which is now posted on the Internet.
Next, in order to further verify the picture transmitted on the Internet, we used Google search engine to set the search time range in 2014 when the vice president of Iran was visited in the hospital after a car accident in 2014, and used the Persian name of the vice president of Iran to search, and successfully found the picture transmitted on the Internet today.
