  • NCRI President-elect Maryam Rajavi, while sympathizing with the bereaved people, especially the relatives of the Coronavirus victims in Tehran to Isfahan, East Azerbaijan, Khuzestan, Qom, Lorestan, West Azerbaijan, and the four corners of Iran, said that the main cause of the tragedy, which is becoming more widespread every day, is the criminal policies of the religious fascism ruling Iran. For eight months now, Khamenei, who has stolen $1,000 billion from the wealth and properties of the Iranian people, has not spent anything to help the impoverished and the poor and has sent them to the Coronavirus killing ground to make ends meet.

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) announced on Friday, October 2, 2020, that the number of Coronavirus death toll in 450 cities across Iran exceeded 114,300. The number of victims in Tehran is 27,071, Khorasan Razavi 8,474, Khuzestan 7,433, Isfahan 5,684, Mazandaran 5,412, Lorestan 5,052, Qom 5,020, Gilan 4,621,East Azerbaijan 3,888, Golestan 3351, Alborz 3,155, Hamedan 3,032, Kermanshah 2,528, Bushehr 1,695, Semnan 1,561, Yazd 1,541, and Central Province 1,490.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), sympathized with the bereaved people, especially the relatives of the Coronavirus victims from Tehran to Isfahan, East Azerbaijan, Khuzestan, Qom, Lorestan, West Azerbaijan, and the four corners of Iran. She said that the main cause of the tragedy, which is becoming more widespread every day, is the criminal policies of the religious fascism ruling Iran. Khamenei and Rouhani are not accepting the slightest responsibility to confront Coronavirus, and they intend to put all the burden on the Iranian people’s lives and properties. For example, in his speech, while Rouhani did not say a word about how to deal with the spread of the catastrophe yesterday, he focused on extortion under the pretext of punishing those who do not follow the protocols. For eight months now, Khamenei, who has stolen $1,000 billion from the wealth and properties of the Iranian people, has not allocated anything to help the impoverished and the poor and has sent them to the Coronavirus killing ground to make ends meet.
