A Report on the Actual Number of Coronavirus Victims in Tehran May 29, 2020
According to the latest government numbers, as of Thursday, May 28th, 7,627 have died in Iran because of contracting coronavirus.
Worries and distrust have swirled since the early days of the virus outbreak in Iran about the verification and accuracy of the regime’s data. Since the outset, the regime has refrained from releasing provincial data of the pandemic, insisting instead on general national statistics. Tehran has declared it criminal to report on any figures outside the government channels, and many people have been arrested as a result.
On the other hand, the Iranian Resistance has been issuing daily reports on the coronavirus deaths in Iran since February 20, 2020. The reports are based on data compiled from doctors, nurses, medical personnel, morgues, cemeteries, and reports obtained from inside the regime.
