“The coronavirus statistics in [Ilam] province have been increasing in recent days, particularly in the last ten days, the number of cases involving minors under the age of 12 has increased,” the vice dean of Ilam Medical Sciences University told the Mehr news agency on Wednesday.
Omicron has killed its second victim in Iran
According to a Wednesday report provided by the regime’s official IRIB news agency, 102 people in West Azerbaijan province have contracted coronavirus in the last 24 hours, and 434 people are currently hospitalized, with 136 in intensive care units and 22 on ventilators.

“Omicron has claimed its second victim, but nothing has changed in Iran in terms of daily affairs.” According to a Wednesday piece published by the state-run Etemad daily, “a passenger from the United Arab Emirates who had contracted the virus entered the country without any restrictions or surveillance from the naval, aerial, or ground borders, traveled all the way to the capital without any commuting limitations, and the patient’s test was confirmed in the Pasteur Institute.”
Reza Malekzadeh, Deputy Health Minister (State TV Channel 5 – March 13): “We were late in noticing the COVID-19 virus in Iran. We had extensive contacts. The virus entered Iran while we thought it was influenza.
