As more and more people fall victim to the Coronavirus because of the regime’s inhuman policies, Hassan Rouhani brazenly claimed today that his government “has been unrivaled in Iran’s history from the time of Achaemenid Empire in providing health care .” Trying to cover up forging fake COVID-19 figures, he added, “From the day we found out that the virus entered the country, there was not a moment’s hesitation in publicizing the information. Based on the same international standard, we announced the death toll accurately, daily, and without interruption. This was transparent and is one of the greatest honors of this Government and the Health Ministry.”
