“We in Sina Hospital have dire patients and yet due to the limited number of ICUs we cannot provide adequate medical care for them. Some of our patients are in other branches receiving necessary medical care outside of our ICUs,” said the head of Tehran’s Sina Hospital on Thursday. “Our main issue is the shortage of ICU nurses. None of the coronavirus patients who have died in our hospital had received two vaccine doses, meaning we had no patient lose their life who had received two vaccine doses and at least two weeks had surpassed from their second vaccine shot,” this official added, according to the Mehr news agency, an outlet linked to the regime's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).
