The regime’s Health Ministry announced the mullahs’ engineered Covid-19 numbers from the past 24 hours on Monday as 213 deaths and 25,441 new cases, registering the highest such stats in 49 days and the past three months, respectively. Furthermore, 4361 patients are in ICUs and 2740 of the new cases have been hospitalized.

“All administrative offices across the provinces of Tehran and Alborz will be closed from this Tuesday to Sunday,” said Ali Rabie on Monday, according to the Mehr news agency, an outlet linked to the regime's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).

“For the first time the number of people hospitalized in Tehran has surpassed the 8000 mark and more than 20,000 people sought initial medical care for Covid-19 symptoms,” said Alireza Zali, head of the Tehran Covid-19 Task Force on Monday. “The fifth coronavirus wave will continue for the next two weeks in Tehran, making the city a red zone. In the coming days, we will most definitely have more people hospitalized. For now, we need to place more effort to import more vaccines. The indigenous vaccine production is not at a stage to respond to our country’s demands,” he added, according to the Mehr news agency.

“Today, Sistan & Baluchistan province has the highest number of daily deaths in the country. Currently ten in every 100 people are dying, and these are official stats. I am objecting to these stats because this is a very vast province with 26 cities, of which 14 lack hospitals,” said a member of the regime’s Majlis (parliament) from the city of Zahedan on Monday, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.

“The number of deaths this year indicates the intensity of coronavirus has increased in [Alborz] province and the empty beds in our hospitals are being filled in the fifth wave,” said the deputy governor of Alborz province on Monday, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.

 

 

“This week the number of people hospitalized each day for coronavirus has doubled. If this trend continues it is quite possible that the number of people hospitalized and those in ICUs may rise. Ardabil province will then enter crisis mode,” according to a statement released by the Ardabil Medical Sciences University on Monday.

The spokesperson of the Isfahan Medical Sciences University said 1550 new cases have been identified in the past 24 hours alone. “315 of the new patients have been hospitalized while only 219 were released,” this official added on Monday, according to the Mehr news agency.

“The number of minors contracting coronavirus in [Golestan] province continues to rise, and we currently have 41 minors hospitalized,” said an official at Golestan Medical Sciences University on Monday, according to the regime's official IRNA news agency.
