The regime’s Health Ministry announced the mullahs’ engineered Covid-19 numbers from the past 24 hours on Tuesday as 3223 new cases and 117 deaths.
“It doesn’t appear that we are at a stage where I can say we can feel relieved. We have yet to overcome omicron and there are still new cases,” said a member of the National Covid-19 Task Force Scientific Committee on Monday regarding the seventh peak, according to the state-run Mashreq daily.
“The sixth peak has yet to end. We will have the seventh peak afterward. Despite the constant reminders, the Health Ministry failed to analyze the threats inside the cities and different areas. If they had done so we could have imposed more serious restrictions for high-risk areas,” said Hamid Souri, a renowned epidemiologist in Iran on Monday, according to the Shafaqna news agency.
There are currently 15 of 23 cities registered as red zones in Kerman province, five are orange zones and three are yellow zones, according to a report wired on Monday by the regime’s official IRIB news agency.
