This is in line with their policy of mass killing to use #Coronavirus to divert everyone's attention from the main issue,which is the need to overthrow the ruling dictatorship. The same policy they used during Iran-#Iraq war to justify the cruel domestic repression.#FreeIran2020 https://t.co/u8PjjfUZM5

A Health Ministry spokesperson reported on Monday that in the last 24-hours 212 have died and 3,819 individuals are in ICU. Currently, 25 provinces are on code red. There have been huge increases in the number hospitalized over the last month.
The Deputy Health Minister, Iraj Harirchi reported that “if we are to have 200 plus [Covid-19] deaths each day, we will reach very high numbers in the next 365 days,” …….. “All our efforts in June went to waste in July.”
Alborz University of Medical Sciences: “COVID-19 victims in hospitals covered by this university reached 1549 people.”
Kerman University of Medical Sciences: “Currently, ICU beds in the Province are full, and all hospitals in the Province are involved with COVID-19 patients.”
Tabriz University of Medical Sciences: “Currently, 803 people are hospitalized in our hospitals, and 120 people are on the ventilators. When we say under the ventilator, we mean people in dire conditions, who with the best care, have a low chance of survival.”
Minoo Mohraz, member of the National COVID-19, Combat Taskforce: “Holding Muharram ceremonies is catastrophic.”
Massoud Mardani a specialist in infectious diseases: “It is not permissible to hold any gathering, and this has nothing to do with the holy months of Muharram and Safar.”
Alireza Zali, head of the Tehran Covid-19 Task Force also said on Monday:
“Considering the continued increasing trend of the novel coronavirus, especially in Tehran, and the extreme fatigue of our medical staff, and the fact that many can no longer continue providing any services after contracting the virus themselves… I am requesting that you order an immediate evaluation of permitting the hiring of new individuals for these positions.”
#COVID19 taking its toll more & more every day in #Iran. Mullahs have no plan to curb the pandemic, they prefer let people die of #coronavirus than face them protesting against them in the streets.

Nahid Khodakarami, head of the Tehran City Council Health Committee, reported on Monday that: “yesterday, 116 people who died of Covid-19 were buried in Beheshte Zahra Cemetery and 118 the day before. These are very high numbers”……. “Furthermore, all the ICU beds in the capital are full.”
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), reported that Rouhani and regime supreme leader, Ali Khamenei’s, decision to hold mourning ceremonies in Muharram ‘’is aimed at intentionally committing mass murder of the population.’’ She believes that the strategy being used by the regime is to maximize the number of casualties so that no more countrywide protests against the regime take place.
In Saudi Arabia exactly the opposite is happening, where Hajj ceremonies have been canceled to protect the lives of Muslims. Another despicable strategy is destroying the health system by refusing to hire more nurses to give support to those who already have COVID-19.
#Iran: #Coronavirus Fatalities Exceed 77,000 in 347 Cities
“The status quo is not good at all… nearly the entire country is in code red conditions,” said the regime’s Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi.https://t.co/9wmKQW07Ah
