Iran: Coronavirus Fatalities in 342 Cities Exceeds 66,900

  • Regime’s Health Ministry announced for the first time that the number of deaths in the past 24 hours had reached 200, 26% more than the highest figure made public in the last five months.
  • The Health Ministry announced 20 provinces in a state of red and alarm
  • Director of Tehran City Council: 70 Coronavirus Patients were buried in Behesht Zahra Cemetery yesterday
  • Head of Infectious Diseases Department at Masih Daneshvari Hospital: There are no empty beds. Canopies are set up in open air for patients waiting to be transferred to the wards when beds are emptied. Naturally, when the number of patients exceeds the limit, it gets out of control.
  • Mrs. Maryam Rajavi: The rapid rise in the number of Coronavirus victims across the country, especially in Tehran, to some of which the regime’s officials reluctantly admit, is due to the criminal policies of Khamenei and Rouhani. Instead of providing temporary relief for workers, they force them to go to work in the busiest and most contaminated areas without minimum preventive and treatment resources. At the same time, they blame the people for not abiding by health protocols and for the spread of the virus. This is the strategy of mass casualties to forestall the danger of an uprising and their overthrow.
