“Following a period of unclear reports and witnessing quarrels between people seeking medical care and officials in charge, I finally got my vaccine,” said Mahmoud Sadeghi, a former member of the regime’s Majlis (parliament) on Friday. “Despite the broadcasting of our state TV, there was only the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine being used, and no Iranian vaccine was in sight. It is these lies that destroys the people’s trust,” he added, according to the state-run Khabar Online website.

“100 percent of the hospital beds in the city of Tehran and other provincial capitals indicates that conditions are not good at all,” according to a Friday report wired by the Mehr news agency, an outlet linked to the regime's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS). “The number of people hospitalized for coronavirus in Tehran has surpassed the 10,000 mark and currently, by adding beds in the emergency and other branches… they are seeking to provide maximum medical care to their patients,” the report adds.

“The number of dire coronavirus patients has increased. Yesterday 70 patients received Remdesivir medicine without being hospitalized. They usually would need to be hospitalized, however, since the hospital has reached its full capacity, this was impossible,” said the head of Amir Al-Momeneen Hospital in Ahvaz on Friday, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.

“Conditions in all 14 cities are red, while hyper red in some areas heading towards being registered as ‘black’ zones. The capacity allocated for coronavirus patients is 1500 beds. Most of our hospitals have reached their full capacities. The remaining hospitals are witnessing an increasing number of patients being hospitalized,” said the dean of Golestan Medical Sciences University on Friday, according to the regime's official IRNA news agency.

“On Thursday, with the death of 20 coronavirus patients in Hormozgan province, we registered the highest daily death toll since the beginning of this pandemic,” said the dean of Hormozgan Medical Sciences University on Friday, according to the Mehr news agency.

“A catastrophe is in the making if cities are not placed under full shutdown. How can we say that the city of Mashhad (second largest city in Iran) is running out of available hospital beds? Soon we won’t even have enough empty space in our hospitals to accept the flood of new patients,” wrote a group of Medical Sciences University and physicians in Razavi Khorasan province on Friday. “The medical staff is tired and extremely fatigued. The officials’ silence is so deafening as if reports of more than 300 people dying per day is part of our daily news and it no longer triggers any sensitivity for them,” the text adds, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.

“During the past 24 hours 300 new coronavirus patients have been hospitalized. We have more than 1300 patients hospitalized, of which 230 are in dire conditions,” said deputy dean of Gilan Medical Sciences University on Friday, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.

“The number of people being hospitalized had lowered to triple digits in the past week. However, this figure has again reached 1024, of which 181 are in ICUs,” said the dean of West Azerbaijan Medical Sciences University on Friday, according to the regime's official IRNA news agency.

“Conditions and the number of coronavirus patients hospitalized in medical centers across [Ilam] province is extremely concerning. Currently we have 252 patients hospitalized for coronavirus,” said the deputy dean of Ilam Medical Sciences University on Friday, according to the Mehr news agency.
