While doctors, specialists, and nurses are crying out over major shortages, Rouhani brazenly claimed, today: “While in modern and advanced European countries people were in line for food, hygiene, and the stores were empty from 10 am; even for medicine, treatment, and hospital beds, (they had to wait in line), these did not happen in our country. The shops were not looted. Long queues did not form, and people did not have to wait for hospitals to admit them and did not sleep on the grass in the hospital yard.”
