There is little doubt that if nothing more is done to stop the virus from spreading as Iran enters the winter months there is likely to be a surge in numbers getting the virus. This will be utterly devastating, particularly if typical winter diseases like the flu have to be tackled at the same time.
Currently, any companies in Iran that may be involved in creating a vaccine are far behind their counterparts elsewhere in the world that are already starting to vaccinate their own vulnerable people in the hope that lives can be saved. A senior official of Iran’s Medical Apparatus Organization on Monday said that fighting the virus and saving lives should be a priority, whatever the religion, cultural preference, and ideology the victims are. This is so important now a vaccine for COVID-19 is already available to some in the United Kingdom with other countries making the life-saving drug available very soon.
The deputy chair of Tehran’s City Council on Tuesday said that ending the 2-week restrictions in Tehran and then returning to normal wasn’t going to stop the spread of the virus. He has suggested that restrictions continue until the COVID-19 daily death rate and the number of new cases drops to a minimum.

According to a spokesperson on Tuesday from the Isfahan Medical Sciences University, another victim lost her life due to COVID-19. It seems the effect of the COVIDS-19 has now reached a peak that has never been known even in living memory. Isfahan has more people sick from the virus than in March and April. In the last 24 hours alone 18 have lost their lives to the virus. More victims are now entering hospitals than are being discharged.
“Officials should procure the means to confront Covid-19 because the fatalities and damages caused by coronavirus are more than the 1980s Iran-Iran war,” said the commander of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) division in Zanjan province, northwest Iran, on Monday, according to the ISNA news agency.
