  • Mrs. Maryam Rajavi: Due to the criminal and plundering policies of the regime, the dimensions of the COVID-19 death toll in Iran are much larger than in other countries in respect of their populations. Khamenei wanted to block the uprisings with the policy of mass human losses due to Coronavirus, but the uprising in Khuzestan and other provinces showed that this gimmick is no longer effective. Getting rid of Coronavirus and oppression can only be achieved with the overthrow of the regime and the establishment of freedom and democracy.

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) announced on Monday, August 2, 2021, that the Coronavirus death toll in 547 cities exceeds 345,300. The number of victims in Tehran has reached 80,756, Isfahan 23,385, Khuzestan 21,916, Khorasan Razavi 20,955, Mazandaran 13,380, East Azerbaijan 13,513, West Azerbaijan 12,573, Fars 11,807, Gilan 11,146, Qom 10,225, Alborz 10,053, Sistan and Baluchestan 9,880, Kerman 8,553, Golestan 8,135, Central Province 6,988, Kermanshah 6,418, Yazd 6,007, Hormozgan 5,885, Semnan 5,455, Ardabil 4,145, Qazvin 3,904, Zanjan 3,655, and South Khorasan 3,181.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), expressed her condolences to the millions of bereaved people whose loved ones fall victim to the Coronavirus every day and said that due to the criminal and plundering policies of the regime, the dimensions of the COVID-19 death toll in Iran are much larger than other countries in respect of their populations. Khamenei wanted to block the uprisings with the policy of mass human losses due to Coronavirus, but the uprising in Khuzestan and other provinces showed that this gimmick is no longer effective. Getting rid of poverty, unemployment, and Coronavirus and oppression and repression can only be achieved with the overthrow of this regime and the establishment of democracy and freedom in Iran.
