Iran, May 30, 2020—Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani, by neglecting his previous remarks regarding the novel coronavirus epidemic in Iran and his claims of containing this illness, acknowledged that Iran’s COVID-19 numbers are on the rise. “The number of coronavirus cases are increasing. Our work has now become even more difficult. If our people believe we will return to pre-coronavirus conditions, it is not so. We will not return to normal circumstances any time soon,” Rouhani said on Saturday, May 30.
“Our people should not be worried, though. This is actually in our interests in the long run,” he added in his usual hypocritical nature. Rouhani, however, did express grave concerns about revelations regarding the truth of the coronavirus epidemic inside Iran.
“Inflicting fear, inflicting concerns, inflicting a sense of hopelessness are not constructive at all. Some of our provinces are in critical conditions and we are not in good circumstances when it comes to the antibody of this virus,” Rouhani continued.
“We have no problems when it comes to medical equipment. Our physicians and nurses have everything they need and there are no shortages,” the regime’s president added to his daily series of lies.
“We have decided to open the mosques to all the people across the country. This is not just in ‘white’ areas. All mosques in all areas will be reopened. The working hours in government offices that were previously limited will no longer face any restrictions and office hours will return to normal,” Rouhani added.
This indicates further measures by the regime to send more people into the public and in danger of contracting COVID-19. And as always, Rouhani blamed the general public for any possible problems in this regard. “If conditions in various provinces deteriorate, it means the people have not abided by hygiene protocols,” he said.
The mullahs’ inhuman regime is responsible for the new wave of the #coronavirus outbreak and the growing number of victims in #Iran. They do not think of anything but further plunder and preservation of their disgraceful rule.https://t.co/gta8P1quUU pic.twitter.com/1afUfWW3ZC— Maryam Rajavi (@Maryam_Rajavi) May 29, 2020
