  • Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), expressed her condolences on the death of a large number of deprived residents of Sistan and Baluchestan, Hormozgan, and other southern regions due to Coronavirus and called on the youth to rush to the aid of the sick. She said most of the deaths were preventable. The criminal and plundering policies of the clerical regime and the ban on the purchase of vaccines from the United States and Europe have made Iran by far the largest victim of the Coronavirus in the world. This is a crime against humanity. Khamenei is the first culprit and must be brought to justice.

The number of victims in Tehran has reached 75,176, Isfahan 21,715, Khuzestan 20,351, Khorasan Razavi 19,565, West Azerbaijan 11,943, Fars 10,802, Alborz 9,138, Sistan and Baluchestan 7,826, Kerman 7,388, Kermanshah 6,198, Kurdistan 5,467, Hormozgan 4,790, Ardabil 3,950, Bushehr 3,484, and South Khorasan 2,966.
