NCCT Scientific Committee
Alireza Naji, a member of the NCCT Scientific Committee, told the state-run media, Jahan-e Sana’t, today, “The main overseer and responsible for controlling COVID-19 in Iran is the government. During these 16 months, the government and the Health Ministry failed in their duties and in controlling the disease.”
Pointing to the main culprit for such a high COVID-19 death toll in the country, he added, “In my opinion, if such behavior continues, it must be intentional. So far, no proper quarantine has been applied in the country and Tehran.
Lack of follow-up and control of the Coronavirus in the country has taken a deliberate form. The people cannot wait for the mass production of domestic vaccines, and the government must provide a valid vaccine as soon as possible. Otherwise, we will lose many people.”

Maryam Rajavi message
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), repeated her condolences on the staggering COVID-19 death toll in Sistan and Baluchestan and called for nationwide support for the victims. She emphasized that Khamenei had not given up on the strategy of mass human casualties to prevent the uprising.
Otherwise, most of the fatalities could have been prevented. Transportation and rallies and the forced queuing of people outside polling stations during the election masquerade were clear examples of the violation of all COVID-19 preventive health protocols. The crime the regime leaders have committed, causing large-scale human casualties, is a crime against humanity.
