In Tehran, the infection is about 15%… As the Ministry of Health, it was in our interest that the reopening did not happen, but some people cannot make ends meet if they do not work daily. … We are not past the first peek of the outbreak yet. Sometimes a few provinces get caught up and then other provinces. The virus continues to spread across the country.” 

In Tehran, Zali, head of the National Coronavirus Combat Taskforce (NCCT), the IRGC news agency, Fars, yesterday, “14 to 20 percent of Tehran’s population have been infected with Coronavirus. 

In Khomeini Hospital in Tehran, the number of Coronavirus inpatients has increased by 144% in five days. “The number of inpatients from 595 on June 31, has increased to 1340 as of today,” reported Fars news agency. 

According to Javan daily, the IRGC affiliated website, the president of Bushehr University of Medical Sciences said today, “The number of infected people has exceeded 5,000. In other words, in two weeks, the number of patients in Bushehr Province has more than doubled.

Children are among victims 

In Golestan, according to the state television and radio news agency, the president of the University of Medical Sciences reporting of 460 patients hospitalized in the province’s health centers, said, “We may face a shortage of beds in Gonbad Kavus Hospital in the next two or three days. Children are also infected with the virus.”

In Kermanshah, the vice-president of the Medical Sciences University was quoted by IRGC’s mouthpiece Javan, yesterday, as saying, “Every day, our beds are increasing as are the number of patients and the dead….

Despite the red state, Friday prayers to go-ahead

In Fars, a member of Shiraz City Council told the Tasnim news agency on June 24, ” Now, centers for treatment and recuperation are again facing the high number of outpatients, hospitalizations, and the rising number of deaths because of Coronavirus.”

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi is the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI): The shocking number of victims across Iran, especially in Tehran is a direct result of Khamenei’s and Rouhani’s criminal policies that in clear conflict with the relevant ministries and regime experts have sent workers to face the Covid-19 epidemic instead of coming to people’s aide and locking down non-essential activities. Instead, they brazenly claim that the public follows less than 9% of health protocols.
