650 Die From Coronavirus in Iran
This includes the following numbers in the following provinces:
- 150 in Tehran
- 150 in Qom
- 46 in Isfahan
- 45 in Kermanshah
- 23 in Gilan
- 18 in Lorestan
- 14 in Mashhad
- 11 in Karaj & Sorkh Hesar
- 5 in Ahvaz
- 4 in Andimeshk
Of course, in their desperate attempt to seem like they’re in control, the mullahs have refused to announce the true death tool and are only claiming 46 deaths and 593 cases. These lies have been echoed by the regime’s state-run media.
That’s why the government’s Iran daily wrote that there is a “lack of safety measures”, attempts to hide the crisis, and that ministers are “uninformed” on the issue. Even MP Ahmad Hemmati said that “the number of coronavirus deaths and individuals infected is far higher than what is being announced”, so people should be taking the issue “very seriously”.
Of course, the Iranian people are sharing the real story themselves. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), urged healthcare workers to defy the regime and do the same in order to save lives.
The death toll due to the #Coronavirus (#COVIDー19) is rising all across our country occupied by the mullahs. Once again, I urge WHO to immediately dispatch their supervisory and medical teams to #Iran pic.twitter.com/T64vGi2PF2

Rajavi also called on the World Health Organization to dispatch supervisory and medical teams to Iran and for the mullahs to return the medical and health care resources and equipment to healthcare workers and the people.

On Sunday, the regime began to ban people from leaving Qom, which is the epicenter of Iran’s outbreak, and quarantine them if they have symptoms of the coronavirus.
Yet flights to and from China are still continuing, with officials claiming its just cargo being moved, but given their lies, people remain suspicious.
While all countries were administering caution in their relations with China, #Iran’s Mahan Airways, run by the terrorist-designated IRGC, continued its flights to China without paying attention to the Iranian people’s health & life.#coronavirushttps://t.co/7AM4VjRaCX

Meanwhile, a suspected outbreak in Iran’s prisons is out of control, with sick inmates in Kashan Prison not quarantined at all. This is far from the only prison outbreak.
Other countries, seeing how poorly the outbreak has been handled are now banning people coming from Iran. The US and Australia have outright banned anyone who visited Iran in the past 14 days, while Germany, Azerbaijan, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom are insisting on seeing health documents for Iranian passengers.
