The regime’s Health Ministry spokesperson announced the mullahs’ engineered Covid-19 numbers on Friday as 406 new deaths and 14,051 new cases in the past 24 hours, along with 5860 patients being in ICUs. The latter two stats are the highest such numbers in this pandemic for the fourth straight day. Furthermore, 2245 of the new cases have been hospitalized.

“For each Covid-19 death in our country we have 200 to 1000 new cases, with an average of around 60 percent, contracting coronavirus,” said Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi on Thursday, according to the state-run Khabar Fouri website.

“We have 14,000 new coronavirus cases in every 24 hours and over 460 deaths. This indicates the virus continues to be spreading among the population with a high speed,” said Mohammad Ali Mohseni, a member of the regime’s Majlis (parliament) Health Commission presidium on Friday. “Instead of trekking behind the virus and rounding up the mess, we must break the chain reaction of its transmission,” he added, according to the semi-official ILNA news agency.

“Specifically, in the past two weeks and maybe a month we have seen many dire patients seeking medical treatment. A relatively significant peak that somewhat concerned everyone saw no major change in the virus and we were seeing patients in worse conditions in comparison to February and March,” said the head of Tehran’s Imam Hossein Hospital.

“The third wave is far stronger than the first and second waves, and we are still witnessing more patients seeking medical treatment,” said the head of Tehran’s Fayaz Hospital on Wednesday. “What we are witnessing in our own hospital is unfortunately stronger versions of this virus during this peak,” the official added in an interview with state TV.

 

 

“Currently we have 1776 coronavirus patients hospitalized in medical centers across Isfahan province, aside from the cities of Kashan and Aran & Bidgol, of which 363 are in ICUs. There have been 34 Covid-19 deaths in the past 24 hours,” said the spokesperson of the Isfahan Medical Sciences University on Thursday, according to Javan, a newspaper affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).

“We have had 22 confirmed Covid-19 deaths in the past 24 hours and the total count has reached 1834,” said the spokesperson of the Kerman Medical Sciences University on Friday, according to the IRGC-linked Fars news agency.

“Currently we have 748 patients hospitalized in our province’s hospitals, of which 174 are in ICUs. During the past 24 hours we have lost 18 patients to Covid-19,” said the spokesperson of the Sadoughi Medical Sciences University in Yazd province on Friday, according to the regime’s official IRNA news agency.
