MEK Iran: Khamenei Lies Over Iran’s Health Crisis
State-run media sources said on Sunday that Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, met with a number of nurses and family members of medical workers who died as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. Instead of giving remedies to the country’s escalating Covid-19 crisis or the nurses’ terrible repercussions, Khamenei spoke of the “enemy” attempting to “change the place of the oppressor and the oppressed.”
Iran: Covid-19 has killed hundreds of nurses
The mortality toll from the coronavirus has topped 488,100 people, prompting Khamenei’s outburst. Iranians, notably nurses, blame Khamenei for the high death toll caused by his decision to prohibit the import of vaccines from the United States and Europe.
The Covid-19 outbreak has claimed the lives of hundreds of Iranian nurses. Due to their horrible working conditions, several of them have committed suicide, and many more have fled the country. Many Iranian officials have corroborated these facts.
“Unfortunately, we are among the countries with the highest number of infections and deaths among nurses, with 130 dead nurses fighting COVID-19,” said Mohammad Mirza Beigi, the head of Iran’s Nursing Organization, in April 2021.
Nurses on temporary contracts face a difficult situation
In the previous two weeks, Iranian nurses have staged dozens of protests. During the Covid-19 outbreak, unlike in other nations, Iranian nurses were denied fundamental privileges, let alone extra bonuses. In Iran, nurses do not receive their salary for several months. Nurses on temporary contracts face a particularly difficult situation. They are on the front lines of the Covid-19 struggle, yet many of them lack insurance.
These temporary contracts do not include perks, bonuses, or incentives, and their monthly earnings are estimated to be roughly 4 million tomans ($134) based on the free-market dollar exchange rate as of December 13, 2021. Officially contracted nurses receive roughly 7 million tomans, or about $235. This is a fraction of what nurses in other countries earn.
Mullahs regime has sufficient funds to assist nurses
Iran, it could be said, is subject to sanctions and unable to provide more. However, the Iranian regime has sufficient funds to assist nurses. The salary of the regime’s terrorist proxy groups and mercenaries “range from $800 to $1,500, with the average amount being around $1,000,” according to an exclusive study published by the Iranian Resistance in April 2020.
Iran’s healthcare system is collapsing, and Khamenei has refused to invest a single dollar in it. Khamenei and his administration have referred to the Covid-19 outbreak as a “test” and a “blessing” since the beginning. In January, he issued an explicit ban on certified American and British immunizations.
Khamenei refused to buy vaccines from west
He also demanded that the so-called home “vaccines” be produced. The homegrown vaccination was manufactured by Khamenei’s Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order (EIKO), a massive financial entity.
“Ali Tajernia told Sharq daily two weeks ago: ‘It appears that Barakat had presold its vaccine.’ The refusal to buy the vaccination from western countries appears to be due to Barakat’s payment of 200,000 Tomans for each dosage of the vaccine. Barkat got nearly $1 billion from government funding if we multiplied this by 120 million vaccines,'” the state-run Mardom Salarie newspaper said on September 23, 2021.
In other words, Khamenei has not only cared for nurses but is also responsible for their current plight. Allowing authorized vaccines into the country or devoting enough cash to the country’s failing healthcare system could have reduced coronavirus death and infection rates. He, on the other hand, declined to do so.
Khamenei’s most recent propaganda accurately depicts his dread of the Iranian people. Iranian teachers’ recent strike and continuous protests by Iranians from all walks of life are symptoms of a restive populace. By crying crocodile tears for the people, Khamenei seeks to distance himself from Iran’s Covid-19 disaster, which resulted in over 488,100 deaths and a rise in popular anti-regime sentiment.
