The amplifying COVID-19 crisis in Iran has now turned into the regime’s worst nightmare. The mullahs’ regime, which sought to use coronavirus and its mass casualties to quell the restive society, now faces a more explosive society. Also, the regime’s infightings have increased.
The regime’s new round of infighting is currently at the Health Ministry.
On Thursday, Said Namaki, the regime’s Health Minister, at Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, while trying to whitewash his role in the COVID-19 crisis, blamed the weakness of the country’s medical research. “Even one of the predictions in this regard [the coronavirus outbreak] was not correct,” he said, adding, “A minister with such broken findings is not able to run the country’s health sector.”
In response, Reza Malekzadeh, Namaki’s deputy of research, announced his resignation. “Whenever the number of cases and deaths has increased, you have shied away from accepting responsibility. Yet, whenever the statistics have slightly decreased, you have claimed to teach the world how to manage the COVID-19 crisis. You recently spoke of launching a vaccine campaign in Iran,” Malekzadeh wrote in his letter to Namaki.
Malekzadeh’s remarks and his letter confirms the regime’s failure to deal with the COVID-19 crisis. It also shows that the rising COVID-19 death toll is the direct result of mullahs’ mismanagement.
The Iranian Resistance, People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), announced on Monday that over 165,200 people had lost their lives due to the COVID-19. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in Iran, the Iranian Resistance announced that the number of fatalities would increase due to the regime’s mismanagement and cover-up of this crisis. Malekzadeh’s resignation and his letter is a testament to the Iranian Resistance’s warnings.
Shortly after Malekzadeh, Ali Nobakht, the vice-president and secretary of the coronavirus Advisory Council, also resigned. Nobakht’s resignation portrays a severe deterioration of the regime’s health system.
The failure of the regime’s health ministry
The regime’s health system has failed in controlling the COVID-19. Dr. Moayed Alaviyan, former Deputy Minister of Health, recently said: “The team of the Ministry of Health has failed in controlling the COVID-19. They should raise the white flag and say we have failed.”
Despite the regime’s efforts to use the coronavirus outbreak to control the restive society, recent remarks and the regime’s health officials’ resignation show mullahs’ strategy has failed.
The regime’s mismanagement has increased the public’s hatred toward the regime. In addition to society’s restiveness, the people’s tremendous anger and dissatisfaction are transmitted continuously to the system by the regime’s apparatus’s medical and administrative staff as a constant pressure. Now many of the regime’s health officials call for the immediate closure of the country.
All the while, the regime is unable to close the country. By closing the economy, the regime has to use the nation’s plundered wealth and money to support people. Otherwise, poor people will rise again. The regime needs every cent to pursue its warmongering policies and fund its terrorist proxy groups.
Even the regime’s new “extreme restrictions,” It is objected to and opposed by the system’s health experts, calling it useless and for security purposes rather than medical purposes.
In a nutshell, the mullahs’ regime is in a deadlock in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis. There is a difference of opinion between medical experts and Hassan Rouhani, the regime’s president, and the regime’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei.
Medical experts call for the closure of the entire country, but Khamenei and Rouhani only issued some “restrictions.” The Iranian people are paying the price of the regime’s mismanagement of their lives. But the rising death toll will only add to the society’s restiveness. This explosive society awaits only a spark to explode, and this has terrified the regime.
