Also, the provinces of Sistan and Baluchestan, Ilam, Lorestan and Golestan are on alert,” She added.

In Tehran, Alireza Zali, head of the National Coronavirus Combat Taskforce (NCCT), was quoted by the IRGC affiliated news agency, Fars yesterday, as saying, “Tehran is still facing an upward curve in the number of COVID-19 infections. During the last 24 hours, no less than 425 new patients were admitted in ordinary wards as well as a further 102 in ICUs of Tehran hospitals.”

The vice-president of Tehran’s Medical Sciences University told the state official news agency, ISNA today, “We are practically left with no empty beds in hospitals covered by this University. During the period March 7 to March 12, we had the highest Coronavirus-related hospitalization. If we attain the same level again, which is quite probable, and beyond that, we would no longer be able to respond and cope with it.” He was also quoted by IRNA news agency today, stressing, “In the next 15 days, we would witness an increase in infection, hospitalization, and death related to Coronavirus.”

Hospitals in the city are full. Bukan’s Qolipour Hospital is full, and there are no beds available for Coronavirus patients. If the Government would provide some resources to the people so that they could stay home and lock down their businesses for a month, the spread of the virus will, to a large extent, be prevented, and hospitals would not run into difficulties.”
