Therefore, we are announcing the wrong statistics. We are giving the wrong figures to the world. (State TV, June 14, 2021)
The dilemma of vaccine
Professor at the University of Biotechnology said: three million doses of a vaccine were supposed to be delivered, but given the cost was $20 per dose, we did not purchase it. These vaccines would have been purchased with the state currency rate. i.e., each dose will be 10 dollars, equal to 420,000 rials. Is the life of every Iranian not worth 420,000 rials?
