The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) announced on Saturday, July 31, 2021, that the Coronavirus death toll in 547 cities is more than 343,100. The number of victims in Tehran has reached 80,176, Isfahan 23,230, Khuzestan 21,801, Khorasan Razavi 20,745, East Azerbaijan 13,473, Mazandaran 13,290, West Azerbaijan 12,523, Fars 11,707, Gilan 11,081, Qom 10,255, Alborz 9,963, Sistan and Baluchestan 9,735, Kerman 8,463, Golestan 8,075, Hamedan 7,148, Central Province 6,953, Yazd 5,952, Hormozgan 5,810, Ardabil 4,125, South Khorasan 3,151, Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari 2,775, and Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad 2,624.

Before leaving office, on his last NCCT session, in another brazen lie, Rouhani claimed, “Our COVID-19 related decisions have always been based on collective wisdom, that is, we have discussed, examined, and decided. We do not see a decision that is contrary to the scientific principles or the process that runs in the world today.” While only a few percent of the entire population have been vaccinated, he added, “Vaccine is one of our great honors. We are one step ahead of the predictions we made for the vaccine.” His lies contradict Iraj Harirchi, regime’s Deputy Health Minister, who recently told IRNA, on July 21, “I apologize to the people for not being able to fulfill the promises made about wider vaccination.”
