“Conditions in Kurdistan have become worse than before and now all the cities in this provinces, aside from Sarvabad, are registered as red zones. The status quo in the cities of Sanandaj, Qarveh, Kamiaran, and Saqqez are more critical than other areas, and are even considered dark red zones. Currently all hospitals across the province have reached their capacity and we have 200 people in temporary hospitalized conditions,” according to a Saturday statement released by the Kurdistan Medical Sciences University.

“Currently we have 3764 patients hospitalized, of which 519 are in ICUs. During the past 24 hours we have lost 54 patients,” according to a Saturday statement released by the Isfahan and Kashan Medical Sciences universities.

“Considering the high number of Covid-19 patients, the kidney/liver transplant branch in two hospitals of Isfahan have been allocated to coronavirus patients… Coronavirus patients are pushing Isfahan’s medical apparatus to extremely fragile conditions,” said an official in Isfahan’s Al-Zahra Hospital on Saturday, according to the regime's official IRNA news agency.

 

 

“Conditions are extremely fragile. Currently we have 2260 coronavirus patients in hospitals across the province, of which 560 are in ICUs,” according to a Friday statement released by the Razavi Khorasan Medical Sciences University.

“During the past 24 hours 20 people have lost their lives to coronavirus. Qom is considered a ‘red’ zone. 819 patients are hospitalized, of which 261 are in dire conditions. The high death toll will continue for the next two weeks. Between 60 to 80 percent of our patients that come to our emergency branches are in dire conditions. Hospital officials need to think about increasing the number of ICU beds,” said the dean of Qom Medical Sciences University on Friday, according to the regime's official IRNA news agency.

“Kermanshah is among the few provinces that has yet to reach the peak of the new coronavirus peak, and the stats are rising continuously. Currently we have 1508 patients hospitalized, of which 237 are in ICUs,” said the spokesperson of Kermanshah Covid-19 Task Force on Saturday, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.

“Those individuals in our ICUs are in dire conditions. Today’s status quo in our hospitals have rendered far more difficult circumstances for our medical staff,” said the deputy dean of Zanjan Medical Sciences University on Saturday, according to the Mehr news agency, an outlet linked to the regime's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).

“The country’s vaccination numbers are still extremely behind the global average. A look at the global vaccination figures indicates that the volume of vaccines used in Iran is not only a joke in comparison to the vaccination figures of advanced countries, but also far behind the vaccine figures of countries across the region,” according to a Saturday piece in the state-run E’temad daily.
