The record of coronary heart disease was broken in Iran overnight, and according to the Ministry of Health, 42541 new patients were identified and 4865 people were hospitalized. 536 people lost their lives.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called for the vaccine to be made available to everyone “in any way possible,” and the president has called on the Foreign Ministry to “take the necessary steps to expedite and increase vaccine imports.”
The fifth wave of Corona has hit Iran with intensity and in recent weeks the records of infection and death have been broken and there is no sign of improvement in the near future.
Records of morbidity and death in the fifth wave of the corona – which began two months ago – are being broken every day, while according to the tweet of Mohammad Reza Zafarghandi, head of the Iranian Medical Organization, the rate of corona testing in the fifth wave has decreased. A tactic used in other countries to keep statistics and political costs down.
Khamenei has “engineered” secrecy and statistics since the beginning of the corona outbreak, denying the corona’s entry into Iran for at least a month. Later, a survey of the Persian BBC showed that the actual statistics are many times higher than the official statistics.
The latest BBC Persian study shows that from the beginning of the Corona epidemic until mid-summer this year, about 200,000 more people died than the average for the same period in the years before the epidemic began. According to official statistics, the total number of corona casualties is 95,647.
