Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) again underscored that the mullahs’ anti-human regime is responsible for the spike in Coronavirus infections in Iran and the rising number of victims. The mullahs care about nothing other than preserving their disgraceful rule and plundering the Iranian nation. Otherwise, the major economic and financial conglomerates controlled by Khamenei and the IRGC could have easily provided for several months of living expenses of the hardworking Iranians and the deprived so that they would not have needed to go to work. There was no need to send the Iranian people to the altar of Coronavirus.
