Heads of several Iran’s scientific association issued a letter to the regime’s Majlis (parliament) speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf voicing their opposition to the adoption of a bill to establish “Islamic-Iranian Medicine Organizations” and the “Supplementary Medicine Apparatus of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

“Providing medical authorization (diagnosing and curing) to non-physicians is a deemphasis on non-scientific and unprofessional experience of some individuals is completely immoral, unprofessional, and illogical. Basing our medical apparatus upon traditional medicine and modern medicine must be according to the latest scientific principals and proven its effectiveness through accepted methodology. Only under such circumstances can one approve such a decision,” the letter reads in part, according to a Friday report wired by the semi-official ILNA news agency.

“We still have 2500 dire patients in our ICUs. We are forecasting a six to seven-week period prior to the next wave,” said Alireza Zali, head of the Tehran Covid-19 Task Force on Friday, according to the Fars news agency, an outlet linked to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).

 

 

“The number of coronavirus patients entering our hospitals is higher than the country’s average… Six percent of the country’s population has contracted Covid-19. That figure is ten percent in this province,” said the dean of North Khorasan Medical Sciences University on Friday, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.

“The number of people hospitalized stands at 2181, doubling last month’s stats. During the past month we had an average 1500 new cases per day. 319 of those hospitalized are in ICUs and 65 are under ventilators. During the past 24 hours 30 people have lost their lives,” said the dean of West Azerbaijan, Medical Sciences University on Friday, according to the regime's official IRNA news agency.

 

 

The hospitals “are all extremely outdated. Rajai Hospital shouldn’t be accepting patients at all. The building was constructed more than 80 years ago. Nobody should be entering the building. However, due to the limitations and our current circumstances, we are constantly developing and refurbishing the facility. Bu Ali Hospital was never even under the Health Ministry’s authority,” said the governor of Qazvin Province on Friday, according to state-TV.

“If the next coronavirus peak arrives, we have a 100-bed hospital with adequate personnel so that they would no longer need to place patients in the grass outside the hospitals,” said Ahmad Alamalhoda, the representative of regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in Khorasan on Friday, according to state TV.
