“Right now, we are reentering warlike conditions. If only I could show you some footage of our emergency branch. During the past 24 hours we have had 2,000 people coming into the hospital,” said the director general of Tehran’s Milad Hospital on Wednesday. “Right now, we have launched a field hospital inside a tent in the emergency branch’s courtyard. Conditions are extremely poor, and we are still on the rise right now. I am feeling the threat as we speak that our highly equipped, 1,000-bed hospital will not be able to respond to the upcoming conditions. The number of people seeking initial medical care and the daily death rate are both remarkably high,” this official added, according to state TV.

“It appears that in the coming weeks we will be witnessing the most intensive peak of the past 18 months in Tehran… and we may see various developments that we did not see in the previous peak,” said the head of Tehran’s Rasoul-e Akram Hospital on Wednesday.

 

 

“We are expecting the Health Ministry to provide the vaccine for people above the age of 50 being in the utmost priority.

“Coronavirus conditions in numerous cities of Sistan & Baluchistan province has to be designated as black.

“The number of coronavirus patients hospitalized in the past two weeks have tripled in the city of Gorgan,” said the local mayor on Thursday, according to the Mehr news agency, an outlet linked to the regime's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).
