Tomato plant, sick or nutrition?

Tomato    None Given

Hi, My name is Kareem. I live in Dubai and I am new to gardening. I have Tomatoes among other plants. Two weeks ago I added much needed fertilizer, most the tomato plants are doing well, but just two are acting strange. I added Cow Manure, Calcium in the soil and calcium to the leaves, Sea Weed to the soil and to the leaves and some Epsom Salt a week after fertilizers. The plant gets good sun all day long, I sometimes add a shade cloth during from 12:00pm-3:00pm.

Kareem, it appears your tomato might have Yellow Leaf Curl Virus. The yellowing of the leaves and how small/shriveled they appear (especially in the 3rd image) is consistent with this virus. It is described in the PlantVillage library here: https://www.plantvillage.org/en/topic.... Here are some more resources:

Dr. Ravishankar Narayana commented,
Agree with Kelsee, it could be viral disease. Since the virus can transmit to other plants by insect vector (like whiteflies, aphids, etc.) remove the infected plants and burn them.
