The representative of the regime’s Minister of Health in Mazandaran and Golestan provinces said the epicenter of Coronavirus has now transferred to the villages. Mustafa Moin, head of the Supreme Council of the Medical System and former Ministry of Science, Research and Technology in Rafsanjani and Khatami’s cabinets, wrote to Hassan Rouhani: “The losses of a large number of the medical community, as well as the higher mortality of patients compared to other countries, will always remain as a shame.” He added that “It is being warned that fatigue and the physical and mental toll on the medical staff will threaten the quality of treatment for patients.” He warned, “pretending that the situation is normal and creating a false sense of security under the pretext of avoiding anxiety and stress could be dangerous, and the consequences of stress are far less than the sudden exposure to a human catastrophe,”
The state-run Sharq daily reported on the regime’s heightening economic crisis as a result of the Coronavirus shock. It wrote, “All macroeconomic indicators and parameters force us to question our ability to pass through this crisis. The dimensions and aspects of the challenges of the Iranian economy are far broader, deeper, and beyond expectations. Therefore, conventional approaches are not the answer to the current critical condition and crisis.”
