Iran: Coronavirus Death Toll in 465 Cities Surpasses 159,000

Shocking confession of the Health Ministry: Some days the death toll reaches four digits

  • While acknowledging some of the lockdowns, in a brazen lie, Rouhani claimed: “51% of the infections are due to family travels. We are not under pressure in terms of lack of equipment, beds, ICUs, and ventilators, but the lockdowns are for the medical staff to rejuvenate. One-third of the population will receive 100,000 tomans (less than $4) a month for four months. A loan of one million ($39) will also be allocated to these families!”
  • A regime parliament deputy: Today, the parliament has no place in the decision-making hierarchy. Not only is the parliament not in charge, but it is positioned the lowest. It is the weakness and incompetence of the parliament that it does not have a representative in the National Coronavirus Combat Task Force (NCCT). Today there is nothing left for the parliament but a name, a building, and 290 deputies. (Mehr news agency, November 18, 2020)
  • Masih Daneshvari Hospital: From the beginning of the third peak until today, the statistics have always been rising upward; the Coronavirus has tightened its grip and is rapidly rotating in the community. (ISNA, November 18, 2020)
  • Isfahan University of Medical Sciences: Except for Kashan, Aran and Bidgol, 2,044 Coronavirus patients are hospitalized in the Province, 397 are in ICU, and 37 have died in 24 hours. (Javan daily, November 17, 2020)

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK) announced on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, that the number of Coronavirus death toll in 465 cities exceeded 159,000. The number of victims in Tehran is 38,941, Isfahan 8,955, Lorestan 6,705, Qom 6,540, Mazandaran 6,472, East Azerbaijan 5,969, Gilan 5,496, West Azerbaijan 5,328, Fars 4,357, Alborz 4,310, Kermanshah 3,478, Central Province 3,018, Kurdistan 2,850, Yazd 2,767, Kerman 2,704, Ardabil 1,760, Qazvin 1,628, Zanjan 1,500, Ilam 1,485, South Khorasan 1,416, Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad 1,114.

A spokesperson for the regime’s Health Ministry was quoted by IRNA as saying today: “There is a lot of talk about statistics. Some of the increase in death toll may be due to chronic diseases, including heart disease, but people can get statistics from cemeteries. On some days when the death toll is high, the total number of fatalities, suspicious, and probable deaths due to Coronavirus could have reached four digits. I do not announce the probable and suspicious cases daily and rely on definite cases based on PCR tests. We are not basing our (policy) on hiding the statistics, and every day we try to add on the accuracy of the statistics. About 50 percent of COVID-19 patients admitted to the ICU die, and more than four out of every 10,000 patients become infected again.”
